English Roses are some of the best-loved, high-performance flowers in the garden, so they are perfect for growing in the mixed border.

'Queen of Sweden' has charming, wide shallow-cupped flowers that open in softest glowing apricot-pink, later becoming pure soft pink. The flowers are medium-sized and Old Rose in character, with a medium to light myrrh fragrance. Each flower has approximately 140 petals. Its growth is upright but bushy and exceptionally healthy. Its stems are nearly thornless and its blooms are long-lasting when cut from the garden. Grows to 4 ft tall by 2 1/2 ft wide. (David Austin 2004, Austiger).

Pretty, many petalled, cupped blooms of soft pink. There is a rich Old Rose fragrance with raspberry notes. It flowers in flushes from early summer until the first frosts. It forms a nicely rounded, slightly upright, bushy shrub with plentiful, glossy green foliage. David Austin, 2001.

Teasing Georgia Climbing. A superb deep yellow cup-flowered rose, whose outer petals turn back and are a paler yellow. This is equally good as a climber or as a shrub and should grow to 8 - 10 ft. Medium to strong fragrance
