Sister Elizabeth Rose

David Austin English Roses

The Sister Elizabeth rose, is another creation by the famous rose breeder David Austin.

This is a pretty little English rose that grows low (around 2 1/2' by 2 1/2'), and forms a rounded shape. The canes arch and branch freely in a nice mounded habit.

The color is rose/pink with lilac shading. The blooms are similar to the old Gallica roses, being very full, with a center button eye, and perfect rosettes.

The medium sized flowers have a very lovely Old rose fragrance (sweet and spicy), which adds to the romance of this charming rose.

More about Sister Elizabeth Rose..

This repeat flowering English rose blooms in flushes throughout the growing season. Removing the spent blooms will encourage it to keep producing more blooms.

The blooms come in large clusters of old-fashioned looking rose flowers.

Because of it's size and growth habit, this rose is perfect for planting in containers or large pots.

It is also excellent for using in the front of the border, or to line a walk, path, or entrance to your garden.

Planting near a bench or other seated area like a patio or deck, would be nice because you would be able to not only enjoy the beautiful blooms, but the delicious fragrance as well.

Sister Elizabeth was named after a Cistercian nun from the Holy Cross Abbey in South Wales. She was one who dearly loved roses.
