David Austin Roses
Breeders of The English Roses
David Austin started breeding roses over 50 years ago as an amateur rose breeder. Inspired by a book on old roses, he set out to try to combine the best characteristics of the old roses with the best of the new roses. The different types of roses in our collection include climbing and rambling roses, modern shrub roses, ground cover roses and floribundas. We believe that we have a rose for every possible purpose.
English Roses are healthy, vigorous shrub roses which are easy to establish and very forgiving if you are new to pruning. They appreciate plenty of water and good feeding to give them the energy to provide several flushes of bloom each season. David Austin's roses known for their beautiful many-petalled rosettes or cupped flower forms. They are renowned for the variety as well as the intensity of their fragrances. This year they are making the selection process even easier with the "Simple to grow" Collection.
