The Boscobel rose, is another beautiful English rose, created by the famous rose breeder David Austin.
This is a repeat flowering English rose, that displays the most beautifully formed flowers, with colors that change as the flower matures.
Beginning as red buds, the flowers take on a salmon coloring, that slowly changes to become a rich, deep pink color.
The red colored buds, open to cup shaped flowers that eventually become perfectly formed blooms that are the classic rosette shape.
The flowers are filled with numerous small petals that are in various shades. The mingling of the colors, makes for a very desirable looking rose flower.
These double flowers appear in flushes throughout the growing season. The bush is cluster-flowered, with small, fragrant, salmon/pink blooms glowing against dark green shiny foliage.
