The English roses of David Austin are loved the world over. First bred by the man himself, and now by the family-led company that is his legacy. David started farming in the 1950s as a young man, and it is here that he started his love affair with old fashioned roses. His first hybridising attempt resulted in the well known ‘Constance Spry’, which was released in 1961. The company is still based in Shropshire, England, and continue the work started by David by creating ever-more beautiful roses.
These roses are rich in old fashioned charm and fragrance, and grow very well in Australian conditions.
