"The Dark Lady"

At home in the rose garden.

Bred by David Austin, UK, and one of the earliest crosses in 1991 of ‘Mary Rose’ x ‘Prospero’ it has qualities from both parents. The plant is upright, bushy and free flowering with medium sized, dark green foliage and lots of prickles.

The Dark Lady has a unique perfume which is very evident when the weather is warm and humid – many people say it has no fragrance at all so this rose must be enjoyed during warmer weather when it reveals a lovely fragrance.

(notes from David Austin's webpage)

One of my favourites in the rose garden, is a picture when in full bloom.
At first the shrub tended to sprawl, but with help from me, corrected this
fault quite early in its growth. The light coloured leaves belong to
another rose that is alongside TDL in that particular bed of roses.
A very difficult rose to get the colour just right, but I think I cracked it here.

other sizes: small medium large original auto
