Description from David Austin Roses
One of our earlier varieties and still a very worthwhile rose. It is closely related to the old Gloire de Dijon and it has inherited both its lovely glistening apricot color and its delicious fragrance. It forms a short bush, suitable either for rose bed or border. The flowers are at first attractively rounded, opening to a shallow cup.
It has a remarkable and unusual fragrance with aspects of lilac and mimosa.
The name comes from Shakespeare’s play,'Titus Andronicus'.
