Living up to its name (bonica is the Catalan for beautiful), Rosa Bonica is a repeat flowering rose that is known for its clouds of medium-sized, mid-pink flowers that are arranged in clusters amongst its ample foliage. It does, however, present a difficult decision: deadhead spent flowers for more blooms or leave them and enjoy a remarkable display of brilliant, red rose hips. 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.


Grown by David Austin, Rosa Bonica was bred in 1981 by the renowned French rose breeder Meilland Rechardier. This particular variety has always been one of the most popular and most planted of the Austin roses due to its reputation for being extremely healthy and reliably producing a mass of flowers.
