David Austin Roses New Introductions: Chelsea Flower Show

David Austin Rose Gardens

Albrighton, Wolverhampton,


'Wollerton Old Hall'
A new rose named for a beautifully designed & planted Arts & Crafts-style English garden, a favorite of mine.
Do visit should you be traveling round Shropshire.

These brilliant new rose varieties were introduced by David Austin Roses at the Chelsea Flower Show 2011.
I'll admit to being more than partial to Austin's 'English Roses' .. with their lovely flower forms and heady fragrances.

Look for an upcoming post on the David Austin Roses' display in the Pavilion at Chelsea!


  1. I so envy those of you that got to Chelsea. One day I hope to attend. The roses are lovely.

  2. Oh, beautiful. I can almost smell them from here!

  3. Those roses are gorgeous. I wish I had been there--can't wait for part two.

  4. Usually I prefer old roses, but these are superb.

  5. I can only imagine the scent flowing through the air as well as the pleasure it brings to the eye. Beautiful!

  6. Hello all,
    what can I say but what I said... Austin's roses are sublime!

  7. Oh Alice, what gorgeous blooms. I love David Austin roses, especially their old world fragrance.

  8. Ahhh, I'll take one of each! We've had trouble with them in our zone in the past.... trying them this year again, and hoping that some careful mulching makes all the difference!

  9. I have some of D. Austin roses in my garden. I simply adore this type of rose.
