Wildeve rose is one of the David Austin English roses with perfect rosette shaped pink/apricot colored flowers. The blooms appear pink at first, then open to reveal blush petals touched with apricot. The medium size flowers are perfectly shaped and distinctly quartered. The large, very full flowers appear in small clusters. This English rose blooms prolifically all season long.
This rose bush is rounded, and well-branched. It arches gracefully, with blooms that simply cover the bush.
It makes a very pretty rose bush in the garden. The bush itself is very robust and healthy growing. It is resistant to both black spot and mildew.
If need be, you can plant these English roses in a bit of shade, and it will tolerate a part shaded area.
The flowers stand up very well in the rain, and the
bush is very winter hardy as well.
