FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

JUDE THE OBSCURE

Q: Which is the most fragrant English Rose? A: Jude the Obscure is probably the most fragrant although it does depend on the day and your individual response to scent. It is certainly the variety that seems to delight most people. It has the most wonderful fruity fragrance which is often strongly citrus and sometimes distinctly guava, lychee or sweet white wine. Other contenders for the title include Gertrude Jekyll (a perfectly balanced old rose fragrance), Lady Emma Hamilton (a deliciously fruity fragrance), Wild Edric (a blend of old rose and clove) and Jubilee Celebration (another lovely fruity fragrance).

JUDE THE OBSCURE

David Austin. Shrub Rose. 1989.  3ft-4ft

'Jude The Obscure' vies with 'Golden Celebration' for the first place as the most magnificent of the English Roses. Its flowers are very large and of incurved chalice shape. Their colour is a pleasing medium yellow on the inside of the petals and a paler yellow on the outside. It has excellent, strong and almost disease free growth. This rose is particularly fine in a dry climate, although it may ball in the rain. A very strong, and unusual delicious fragrance with a fruity note reminiscent of guava and sweet white wine. Quite hardy plus good repeat flowering habit.

Named after the character in Thomas Hardy's novel.
