A white sport of "Mary Rose", with an occasional hint of pink. It produces a mass of fragrant, medium-sized, loosely petalled rosettes and continues to bloom at regular intervals throughout the summer. It is a well-formed shrub, with branching, bushy growth and attractive foliage. It owes its name to one of the most beautiful cathedrals in Great Britain. David Austin, 1984.
English roses are those created by David Austin. Passionate about old roses, this British rose grower born in 1926 has devoted his life to creating more than 200 English roses. Even if the name "English Rose" is not officially recognized by the official botanical authorities, it is indeed this name that the professionals have kept to qualify it in catalogs and in nurseries. The English rose is a mix between the old rose whose fragrance it has kept, and the modern rose whose regular flowering it has taken.
