This upright, bushy, compact shrub rose is a David Austin English rose
which typically grows 2-4” tall and features large, intensely fragrant,
fully double, pink blooms with a hint of lilac. Blooms well from spring
to fall. Foliage is moderate green.
Roses are susceptible to a large number of disease problems, the most
common of which are black spot, powdery mildew, rust and rose rosette.
If good cultural practices do not control disease, then fungicides may
become necessary. Insect problems include aphids, beetles, borers, scale,
thrips, leafhoppers and mites. If natural predators fail to control insect
populations adequately, then insecticides may become necessary. This David
Austin rose reportedly has good disease resistance.
Shrub or mixed border or rose garden. Excellent specimen. Also effective
as a hedge.
