A selection of David Austin roses (one of two galleries today) showcasing a range of colour and flower form. Extending the range of colour typically found in the classic old roses palette is one of the aims of the English rose breeding programme – though there are limits on where this will lead. But there is variety enough to suit most garden situations, including wilder areas with the single and semi-double offerings (and particular mention to the newest repeat flowering The Albrighton Rambler).
