In the gentlest of tones, Rosa Queen of Sweden (Austiger) produces charming, small apricot pink buds which open into shallow, upward facing cups with regularly arranged petals that turn a lovely soft pink against its matt, mid-green foliage. In addition to its obvious visual beauty, it has a lovely soft myrrh fragrance.

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 the famous David Austin nursery in 2004, the rose was named after the Queen of Sweden in honour of a treaty of friendship and commerce signed by Sweden and Britain. It is particularly useful in a cutting garden due to the regularity and straightness of the flower stems which create superb arrangements.

  • English shrub rose grown for flowers and scent
  • Flowering period: repeat, from late spring to first frost
  • Fully hardy
  • Perfect for cut flowers due to straight stems
  • Classic plant for mixed border or container
  • Enriched, well-drained soil
  • All aspects
  • Full sun or partial sunlight

Dig a hole larger than the root ball and loosen surrounding soil, sprinkle with Mycorrhizal Fungi to promote root growth, position rose, infill and water well. Deadhead spent blooms to promote new buds. Please see our Rose pruning guide.
