This rose grows into an impressive, busy shrub. It has good disease resistance, and is a vigorous growing rosebush.

The fragrance of Munstead Wood is wonderful. It is the treasured 'old rose' fragrance with hints of fruit (blackberry, damson, and blueberry) rather warm, and fruity!

The new appearing leaves are bronze red in color, turning mid-green as they mature. The color of them makes a nice contrast on the bush.

The rose bush itself is delightful! The buds begin a lighter crimson color, and as they open, the center becomes the most beautiful deep velvet color, while the outer petals remain a lighter color.

The flowers are quite large, and are at first cupped, becoming shallowly cupped as they open. They appear in clusters, throughout the growing season.

They are beautiful for use as cut flowers. Their sheer beauty, as well as the wonderful fragrance makes them outstanding in the vase.

The fruity fragrance is described as having hints of blueberry, blackberry and damson. It has won medals for it's fragrance, including the gold medal for fragrance in Japan (Japan Rose Society trials).

I just can't explain the sheer beauty of these roses in the garden!

The Munstead Wood rose can be used in gardens, flower beds, in borders, and as cut flowers.
