Tranquility, The Lark Ascending, Boscobel and Heathcliff– four of the five new roses introduced by David Austin last year.
Apart from Albrighton Rambler, whose appearance we might better be able to guess (and is likely to repeat flower..?), the other 2013/14 additions, Carolyn Knight, Thomas A Becket and The Lady Gardener will have to remain a mystery until their unveiling at Chelsea. Unless of course, Horticulture Week bring us a picture sooner.
What would we most like to see (and smell)?
Royal Jubilee, the fifth of the introductions at Chelsea last year, well, I have only just got a plant from DA, so wait to see how intense a colour/fragrance it may have…
For more information, the David Austin website is a great place to start.
Josephine Hooker had only limited availability in 2012/13 and a few plants may still be on sale through “The Garden Centre Group” centres. No additional plants will be budded (and that means ‘never’).
