General Description

What father-in-law would not be honored to have a rose named for him? And what a rose David Austin honored his father-in-law with, 'L.D. Braithwaite®', a modern Old English shrub rose, bears stunning deep red double blooms. Slightly cupped and lightly fragranced until fully open and mature, the flowers repeat until frost. The healthy shrubs have few thorns and dark green semi-glossy foliage.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.'L.D. Braithwaite®'has a preference for sunny locations and shows good resistance to fungal pathogens.

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