passion AND Patience
Each rose can take up to nine years in development and like most things of exceptional beauty can test the patience of even the most passionate grower.
The particular characteristics that make each rose unique are no accident – the shape, the colour, the exquisite scent. They are all hallmarks of an arduous journey that result in some of the world’s most magnificent creations. A quest for beauty and a certain quality that only experts and true rose breeders like the Austin family recognise.
Following on from the success and recognition for their beautiful English garden roses, David Austin started to shape a new breed of cut rose.
Today, these two rose breeding programmes run alongside each other – one focused on creating new varieties for the garden and the other dedicated to exceptional cut roses for weddings and special occasions.
