Shropshire Lad Rose


A Shropshire Lad rose is undoubtedly one of our favourite David Austin English roses. The buds start of dark pink, turning to a lovely soft peachy, blush pink as they open. The rosette shaped blooms are slightly cupped. It has a deliciously reach fruity fragrance in the Tea Rose tradition.


This rose will form a large vigorous shrub when positioned towards the back of a border. It will also form a superb climber of 8ft or more with a bit of support.


It is an extremely tough and reliable rose which is almost thornless. Glossy, dark green foliage. Dead head regularly to encourage plenty of blooms. Prefers east, west and south facing positions of full sun.


Named after A.E. Housman’s collection of poems and bred by David Austin in 1996, who was of course a Shropshire Lad himself.


"Roses have one of the most complex, widely ranging perfumes of all flowers. The weather conditions on the day before the rose opens, the age of the flower, the season and even the time of day all influence the fragrance of an individual bloom" -David Austin
