The Poet's Wife

English Rose
This rose fits in well with our English Old Rose Hybrids, even though it has a little of the Leander group in its genetic make-up.  This shows up in its rather shiny foliage.  It is a superb rose with flowers of an unfading, strong yellow.  Their formation is most pleasing, having a neat outer ring of petals enclosing an informal group of petals within.  The growth is low and naturally rounded, making it an ideal rose for a position towards the front of the border.  There is a rich fragrance with strong lemon tints at first, becoming sweeter and stronger with age.
4 x 3.5ft.
