More commonly referred to as Gertrude Jekyll roses, these flowers are named after the famed British author, painter, horticulturist, and landscape and garden designer, Gertrude Jekyll. Hybridized and patented by David Austin, this English rose features cupped, deep pink, double blooms that average four to five inches in diameter. The plant grows from four to eight feet in height, and four to six feet in width. It is classified as a deciduous shrub of the Rosacea family and attracts butterflies with its strong fragrance of old rose.
What’s blooming? Rosa Ausboard!
