The Poets Wife Rose produces beautiful yellow roses that are strong and unfading.
These David Austin roses have a most pleasing fragrance that gets stronger with time.
The lovely formation of flowers has a neat outer ring of petals that enclose an informal group of petals inside it.
The center of the rose flower has the deeper yellow color, with the outer petals fading to a softer tone at the edges that sometimes becomes so light they appear white.
The tightly packed, rounded flowers form a delicate cup of flowers that come in clusters. This repeating rose bush continues to bloom all season.
The 'Poets Wife' rose has a strong, rich fragrance with strong lemon tints. As the flower ages, the scent becomes not only stronger, but sweeter as well.
These make excellent cut flowers for the vase. You can snip a whole bouquet of these sweet scented beauties to decorate your home.
