The Geoff Hamilton rose, are beautiful pink colored David Austin English roses.
The color of this rose is a soft, warm pink, with the outer ring of petals a paler color than the outer petals that are perfectly arranged.
This is a very free flowering, and good repeating rose, with cupped rounded rose flowers, that appear either singly, or in small clusters on pretty long stems.
The 'Geoff Hamilton' rose reminds me of the beautiful cabbage roses. It has those globular shaped blooms that are very full of petals. Around 110) It is a very free flowering rose, giving you lots of those beautiful roses.
Since the bush has very few thorns, picking bouquets is easy! And pick them you should; they are not only beautiful, but fragrant as well, with that old rose scent that most rose gardeners love. (Myself included!)
