Hi @waterlily it's called Falstaff a rigorous growing Rosa Regosa (quite dense and thorny) it reaches about 2m high and a spread of about the same though it can be hard pruned. Oh and it's beautifully old rose scented and double flowering 😀😀👍
Just a tip, do not it prune it for about 3 years so it has a better chance to develop new canes and better blooms. I made a terrible mistake of pruning the woody canes after the 1st year and it didn't produce new ones that year 😟 Only had 2 blooms in the summer and 2 more now.
I'm happy to have visited David Austin roses today and met a lovely lady there who took the time to really understand what I want and help me select roses for the new borders, this will be one. Delivery is November so will now dig in the manure and compost in prep 😬😊😌
Morning ladies @jaynehynesburton @Keely @pelly I'm looking forward to them arriving in November so I'm going to prepare each of the 5 spots by digging in old manure, compost and possibly some leaf mulch. Luckily never grown roses in the spots so they should have a good start 🙏
