8 Of The Best Old English Roses

The English roses grown by the David Austin nurseries combine the style and fragrance of Old Roses with the ability to produce a series of blooms rather than just the one brief flush of color. These roses also have the vigor and disease resistance of modern varieties and so are easy to grow. If you enjoy roses then these are the ones to grow in your garden. This article by Lauren Dunec Hoang which I found on the Houzz website describes eight of the best.

Whether you?re planting your first rose or need an excuse to tuck in just one more, fragrant English roses are about as irresistible as they come. They offer the best of both worlds: the romantic blooms and fragrance of old-world roses with the disease resistance and vigor of modern hybrids.
Plant a fragrant English rose beside a garden gate and catch a trace of sweet vanilla, almond blossom or classic tea every time you pass, or clip a handful of stems to bring the perfume indoors. Whether you?re looking for a cutting rose or a rambling climber, here are our top picks among David Austin?s most fragrant English roses.
