The Pilgrim Rose

David Austin Yellow English Roses

The Pilgrim roseThe Pilgrim

The Pilgrim rose, are David Austin English roses, that are a very beautiful shade of yellow. The perfectly formed flowers are quite large, shallow cupped, and rosette shaped.

They are a mass of little petals that are quilled, tightly packed, neat, and small. They are perfect English rose form.

The lovely yellow color is lighter toward the edges of the blooms, adding softness to the flower that you won’t often see in yellow roses.

The large blooms have many petals that open flat, sometimes revealing a button eye in the center.

The fragrance is (spicy) a wonderful Tea fragrance mixed with English myrrh.

This rose is a prolific bloomer, producing large clusters (typically up to 15 per cluster) of large, flat- topped flowers.
