We love Rosa The Poet’s Wife (Auswhirl) for its strong, fruity fragrance which intensifies over time, becoming sweeter and stronger. Bred by David Austin, the shrub rose bears yellow flowers, consisting of rings of petals enclosing further petals, producing a wonderful rippled effect against the shiny foliage. This results in a very pretty fragrant flower, lovely for cutting. 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.


The truth behind the naming of this attractive rose is unclear, one can only imagine which poet’s wife this brilliant yellow rose is named after.

  • Shrub rose grown for scent
  • Flowering period: repeat
  • Fully hardy
  • Enriched, well-drained soil
  • All aspects

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.


Strong fragrance with hint of lemon
