This beautiful, little known variety A Whiter Shade of Pale (eafanfare) forms a fairly compact bush from which burst forth perfectly formed, pale pink flowers with a strong, sweet fragrance that continue to bloom through summer and into the autumn. Image courtesy of David Austin Roses.

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.


Bred by Limes New Roses, this disease resistant variety will happily thrive in a container or as part of a mixed border, filling the garden with fragrance and pretty pink blooms. ‘A Whiter Shade of Pale’ by Procol Harum is one of UK’s most enduring songs, believed to be one of the most played songs by British broadcasting of the past 50 years.
