Lady Emma Hamilton. The buds of this English Rose, bred by David Austin and introduced in 2005, are red with orange flashes. The fully opened flowers are a rich mix of tangerine orange and gold and the whole is set off by dark, bronzy-green foliage which becomes dark green with age. This unusual colour combination is useful for adding a little excitement into a border. There is a strong and delicious fruity fragrance with hints of pear, grape and citrus fruits. A fairly upright, rather bushy shrub of medium height though may need some support in its early years. Named to commemorate the 200th Anniversary of the Battle of Trafalgar. 120cm x 90cm/ 4ft x 3ft. One of my absolute favourite English roses. This image taken at Syon on the 18th January on a grouping of plants still flowering and with no hint of disease.
