I don't think it would be an over-statement to say that David Austin is probably the most important and influential breeder of modern times. David Austin roses have reignited a fierce passion for roses world-wide and introduced a whole new generation of gardeners to this most beautiful of blooms. Born in 1926, on a farm in the English Midlands where he still resides, David started his breeding programme with the objective of combining "the best of the old with the best of the new". His first releases were crosses between Gallicas and Floribundas producing "Constance Spry" in 1961 and "Chianti" in 1967. Two lovely roses but only once flowering, the main aim was to produce reliable "repeaters". This was achieved in 1969 with the release of The Canterbury Tales series. Around about the 1980's David Austin started to use the brand "English Roses" but such is our association with the man and his roses that these wonderful roses are simply and affectionately called "David Austin's" or just plain "Austin's".

Austin. Not to be confused with a previous release AKA 'Wisley'. This is a rose with exceptional delicacy and charm with shallow cupped rosettes of bloom in a soft pink shade. The blooms are very fragrant and repeat well. Slightly arching habit. PVR 2008.

Wisley is the research garden run the Royal Horticultural Society. The first 'Wisley' rose released by David Austin did not continue to meet the high standards expected of an Austin rose so it has been withdrawn and replaced with 'Wisley 2008'. F.Y.I.

Austin. The double full blooms of this gorgeous rose are large and deeply cupped even when fully open. They have a strong fragrance and are coloured a deep magenta shade with a silvery hue. A lovely rose that will provide you with plenty of blooms to pick and enjoy. PVR 2008.

Now this is interesting - the Poet Milton introduced the word fragrance to the English language. This very fragrant rose is named after the Milton poem called 'Lycidas' to commemorate the 400th anniversay of Milton's birth. Don't worry there won't be a test when you buy the rose!
