One of the most widely grown English Roses, ‘Mary Rose’ is in every way a good garden plant. It bears attractive, rose pink, loose-petalled blooms of medium size, which flower with unusual regularity throughout the summer. The delicious fragrance is of Old Rose character with a hint of honey and almond blossom. A first class, very reliable garden shrub of medium size with well-shaped, twiggy growth and nice foliage. It harmonises well with other plants in a mixed border. (See also the sports ‘Redouté’ and ‘Winchester Cathedral’.) Named to mark the recovery of Henry VIII’s flagship from the Solent after more than 400 years. 4 x 4ft.
