General Description

Very large blooms with a soft fragrance top this modern English shrub rose. The fully double cupped flowers are abundant and feature pretty apricot centers surrounded by ivory petals. 'English Garden™’ has an old rose habit, bushy with strong stems lined with sharp thorns. Its large compound leaves are shiny, leathery and deep green. Most roses bloom with greater vigor if the spent flowers are removed.

Roses prefer full to partial sun, moderate temperatures and perfectly drained, slightly acid soil with average to good fertility. They grow best in places with slightly dry climates, because such climates disfavor the fungal diseases that plague them. For this reason, it is important to maintain good airflow within and between planted roses through good planting and pruning practices which will dissuade fungal attacks. They are also susceptible to a suite of viral and bacterial diseases as well as insect pests, so it is wise to select a robust and resistant cultivar when choosing a rose.

Big, old-fashioned English roses will add charm to any garden. They are perfect for sunny foundations, mixed borders and cutting gardens.
