Features

notes

Each bud of the repeat flowering Rosa Eustacia Vye® (Ausegdon) is borne on red-tinged stems and unfurls into a shallow cup-shape bloom comprising a mass of ruffled petals. The delicate outlines of the petals serve to accentuate the subtle colour of the bloom, which softens attractively in tone as it matures.

Please note, our roses are available to purchase all year round, so depending on the time of year your rose may either arrive in bloom or have been pruned or deadheaded appropriately for the season.

Insights

Throughout the novel, 'The Return of the Native', the reader follows spellbound as Hardy’s compelling heroine, Eustacia Vye, revered for her beauty, takes her uncompromising but misguided journey through life.
