THE DAVID AUSTIN ROSE COLLECTION AUSTRALIA

In the 1940s, when still just a teenager, David Austin was already fascinated with roses. Soon after, his hobby became his life. He released his first rose, ‘Constance Spry’, in 1961. Since then, he has released over 200 new roses, creating an unrivaled collection, beloved throughout the world. 75 years on, his objective remains the same – to create a more beautiful rose.

All David Austin roses have a collective style and reflect one man’s vision. All have beautiful blooms and in most cases, wonderful fragrance held on graceful attractive shrubs. A garden of these outstanding roses is hard to beat for the sheer exuberance of flower and fragrance.

Today, David Austin Roses remains a family business. David Austin has been joined by his son David and his grandson, Richard.

English roses grow very well in Australia. They make superb shrubs for rose borders and for mixed borders with herbaceous plants and other shrubs. With their very long flowering season – up to eight to nine months of the year – they will be the central focus of any planting scheme. Their soft colours harmonise beautifully with almost any other plants.
