A well-formed shrub of shapely, bushy growth. In early summer it is studded with large, deeply cupped blooms in shades of pink, apricot and yellow, and in spite of their size, these continue to be produced for the remainder of the season. An excellent vigorous shrub. A rich, fruity fragrance with a refreshing sharpness. It repeats well but summer pruning will encourage a better crop of flowers and help maintain a more compact plant. 5 ft. x 5 ft. (shrub); 8 ft. (climber)

A flower of beautifully mixed shades of pink, apricot and yellow, overall, giving the impression of rich apricot. At the bud stage, when the petals are just starting to unfurl, the inside of the petals are a very rich, deep apricot as opposed to the paler, soft yellow undersides. When fully open the center of the flower is well filled with petals, their closeness giving the impression of a rich, apricot - pink. Around the center, the loose ring of petals curl in slightly and so show their pale apricot yellow undersides. It will quickly make a lovely, bushy, rounded shrub with quite straight stems, the many flowers nodding just slightly. There is a strong and beautiful myrrh fragrance. Carding Mill is an extremely beautiful valley in the Long Mynd just to the west of our nursery in Shropshire. (David Austin 2004) 4 x 3 1/2ft.

Christopher Marlowe - Rose Varieties | VARDI |  ვარდი                                                                                                                Christopher Marlowe
This rose is of a colour not usually associated with English Roses: an intense orange-red, paling a little to salmon-pink on the outer petals as the flower ages. We need all colours if we are to fulfil all the requirements of the garden. Christopher Marlowe should be useful whenever a bright splash of red is required. The flowers are rosette-shaped; the outer petals reflexing a little. The growth is short but very vigorous, with numerous stems arising from the base and later branching to give a continuous flow of flowers. The result is a free-flowering, nicely rounded shrub. There is a pleasing Tea fragrance, with a hint of lemon. Very healthy. Christopher Marlowe is a well known playwright and contemporary of William Shakespeare. He pressed a rose bud in a book as a mark of friendship to a friend with whom he had had an argument. 2.5 ft. x 3 ft.
Compassion - Rose Varieties | VARDI |  ვარდი                                                                                                                Compassion
This popular variety is noted for its reliability in most parts of the rose-growing world. The well shaped Hybrid Tea flowers have a sweet fragrance; their color being salmon-pink tinted with apricot-orange. The growth is stiff and bushy; ideal for a wall or pillar. The canes constantly renew themselves from the base, giving a good, full appearance. It is particularly healthy. 10 ft.
Crocus Rose (syn. Emanuel) Hedging - Rose Varieties | VARDI |  ვარდი                                                                                                                Crocus Rose (syn. Emanuel) Hedging
This is a very robust and free flowering rose, bearing large, rosette-shaped flowers that are cupped at first; the petals later reflexing. The colour is soft apricot, paling to cream on the outer petals. The flowers are produced very freely, in large clusters elegantly poised on the end of slightly arching stems. They have a delightful Tea Rose fragrance. Named for 'The Crocus Trust', which has been set up to help sufferers affected by colorectal cancer.
Crown Princess Margareta - Rose Varieties | VARDI |  ვარდი                                                                                                                Crown Princess Margareta
A tall, slightly arching shrub which is ideal for the back of the border. The flowers are quite large, neatly-formed rosettes of a lovely apricot-orange. It is one of the Leander group and we think it should thrive even under more rigorous conditions. It is likely to be vigorous in warmer areas and so would benefit from some summer pruning to maintain its shape and encourage quicker repeat flowering. Crown Princess Margareta of Sweden was the granddaughter of Queen Victoria and was an accomplished landscape gardener who, together with the Crown Prince (later, King Gustavus VI Adolfus of Sweden), created the famous Swedish Summer Palace of Sofiero in Helsingborg. 5ft. x 4.5ft to 9-11 ft. as a climber.

Evelyn bears giant, apricot colored flowers of a shallow, saucer-like shape, with numerous small petals inter-twined within. This is not the most vigorous of English Roses, but the individual flower is absolutely magnificent. Its great glory is its wonderful fragrance, which is similar in style to an Old Rose, but with a sumptuous fruity note reminiscent of fresh peaches and apricot. Named on behalf of Crabtree & Evelyn, who used it in their range of rose perfumes. 4 ft. x 3 ft. (6 ft. as climber)

An excellent variety with flowers of a lovely pure apricot - darker in the middle, paler towards the edges; a colour that blends well with other shades; especially dark reds and purples. The blooms are shallowly cupped at first, slowly opening to form a perfect rosette with the outer petals reflexed. It forms a good, branching shrub that is healthy and repeat flowers well. In every way, an excellent garden plant. Delicious, warm and sensuous fragrance. 4 ft. x 4 ft.

A thornless, sweetly scented novel bi-colour with a contrast of amber with a strong orange margin that gently seeps deep into the yellowish amber petal that opens into a well formed bloom in a cocktail of orange and amber with pink and cream hues.

Lady Emma Hamilton - Rose Varieties | VARDI |  ვარდი                                                                                                                Lady Emma Hamilton
A variety of rather unusual colouring for an English Rose, but nonetheless very pleasing and useful for creating a little excitement in the border. Before the flowers even begin to open, the outside of the buds are a most wonderful dark red with dashes of orange. When fully open the flowers are a lovely mixture of rich, almost tangerine orange on the inside of the petals and a more yellow orange on the outside; the whole set off against the very dark, bronzy green leaves that only slowly become dark green with age. It is a fairly upright but bushy shrub of medium height, that will flower freely and remain healthy. The flowers have a strong, delicious, fruity fragrance with hints of pear, grape and citrus fruits. Lady Emma Hamilton was Horatio Nelson's lover and we have named this rose to celebrate the 200th Anniversary of the Battle of Trafalgar. 4 ft x 3 ft.
