L.D. Braithwaite – There are several dark red English Roses, but this is a lighter, brighter crimson, which is slow to fade, so it has long been a valuable addition to our collection. It is related to ‘Mary Rose’ and has many of that rose’s good garden qualities. The petals are loosely arranged to form beautiful, large, slightly cupped blooms that open wide and flat. Flowers are produced with remarkable continuity. There is little scent until the flower ages, when it develops a charming Old Rose fragrance. Zones 4 – 10. Grows to 4.5 feet tall, 4 feet wide.
Lady of Shalott – One of the most reliable and hardy roses in our collection – an ideal rose for the inexperienced gardener. It is highly resistant to disease and will bloom with unusual continuity throughout the season. The young buds are a rich orange-red that open to form chalice-shaped blooms, filled with loosely arranged petals. Each petal has a salmon pink upper side, which contrasts beautifully with the attractive golden yellow reverse. The flowers have a pleasant, warm Tea fragrance, with hints of spiced apple and cloves. It quickly forms a large, bushy shrub with slightly arching stems. The mid-green leaves have attractive, slightly bronzed tones when young. Zones 4 – 10. Grows to 4 feet tall, 3.5 feet wide.
Harlow Carr – A tough and particularly healthy little rose that bears flowers of the most perfect formation – shallow cups of the purest rose pink. These hold their form to the end; the occasional petal falling back to give a pleasing effect. The young foliage is bronze at first, later becoming green. There is a strong, pure Old Rose fragrance that has been described as reminiscent of rose-based cosmetics. Zones 4 – 10. Grows to 4 feet tall, 3 feet wide.
