When introduced in 2012, this rose was a very exciting new development for David Austin. It had flowers a bit different than the standard English roses. If you view (and grow) this rose you will see why.
The Princess Anne English shrub rose is on the smaller size for an English rose, and is perfect for borders, or low hedges, because it is repeat-flowering, and has thick, succulent, glossy foliage.
It also is a good choice if you are looking for a rose to plant in containers or a large pot.
Not only is it a striking color, repeat bloomer, and has a delicious scent, but it is also very disease resistant!
This rose "princess Anne" was named the "Best New Plant Variety" at the UK Grower of the Year Awards in 2011.
It was named in honor of Her Royal Highness, the Princess Royal.
