Bred By David Austin
Flower Type Semi-double
It is always our desire to bring as much variety of form, fragrance and growth as possible to our English Roses and this rose is a good example. The flowers are semi-double and of open, cupped shape with prominent stamens. The colour is deep pink at first, later paling slightly to lilac-pink. At the centre of the flower there is a small white area. There is a light but pleasing fragrance – Musk and Tea with clove and a hint of ‘apple pie’! The growth is light and airy, building up into a natural, well-rounded shrub. An ideal choice for planting amongst other shrubs or perennials towards the front of a mixed border.
The name was suggested by Sister Elizabeth who remembers seeing and hearing a skylark when she first visited our Nursery.
