A particularly tough and reliable variety of medium size, with flowers of deep glowing pink. These are shallowly cupped at first; the outer petals eventually reflexing back and revealing an attractive button eye.
‘England’s Rose’ flowers more or less continually from June right through to the end of the season, in October or even November. The blooms are nicely held in large clusters.
This is a healthy, weather-resistant rose; even in periods of continual rain the blooms do not ball and the petals drop cleanly. The fragrance is particularly fine; strong, warm and spicy with a classic Old Rose character.
It will form an attractive, bushy shrub of medium size, although it could grow taller if pruned lightly. An ideal variety for planting in a rose border or for mixing with perennials.
