Description from David Austin Roses

Gertrude Jekyll (Ausbord) – David Austin Recommended Variety

The flowers of this rose start as perfect little scrolled buds and soon open into the most beautiful, large, rosette-shaped flowers of rich glowing pink. The growth is upright and vigorous and in every way reliable. The most outstanding characteristic of this lovely rose is its beautiful and perfectly-balanced Old Rose scent. This is often described as being the quintessential old rose fragrance. The foliage and growth are similar to that of a Portland Rose, with the typical Portland widely-spaced leaflets. It forms a medium sized shrub which is robust and free flowering. Gertrude Jekyll was a famous garden designer, who has had a profound effect on the style of English gardens of the present day.

In the hottest areas of the US (zones 9 or higher), this rose may repeat flower less well than in cooler areas. To maintain as a shrub in warmer zones we recommend summer pruning. 5 x 3.5 ft or 8-10 ft as a climber.
