Features

notes

Highly valued for its health and versatility, Rosa Elizabeth can be grown as a hedge (it is tolerant of the wind), planted in a border or as a statement shrub in a container. The petals of its medium-sized blooms open into a delightful rosette of the softest pink, with a golden-tinted centre. The flowers mature into an almost white bloom and are doubly enjoyable due to their scent.

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

This enchanting rose was bred by David Austin in 2022 to mark the celebrations of the Platinum Jubilee of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II in February. As a result of her death in September of the same year, Rosa Elizabeth has become a particularly poignant rose to have.
