Charles Darwin (Auspeet)
David Austin Recommended Variety
||(English Rose Collection)
||Strong and delicious fragrance varies between a soft, floral Tea and almost pure lemon according to weather conditions.
||Named after Charles Darwin the British naturalist who was born in Shrewsbury, Shropshire, close to our nursery in the UK.
The blooms of Charles Darwin are some of the largest to be found in the English Roses and are on a par with Brother Cadfael and Golden Celebration, creating a really impressive effect in the garden. The flowers are very full and rounded at first, then opening up to a shallow cup. They are a lovely shade of rich yellow – almost Old Gold – sometimes with lemony or sandy tints. It makes a most attractive, bushy and eye catching shrub that is very healthy and would be ideal for towards the front of a mixed or pure rose border.
