Product Description


This rose will surprise you each time you visit with it – sometimes deep pinks swirled with apricot, buff-yellow and cream and other times much softer pinks and cream with apricot deep in the centre.

The loveliest attribute once you have enjoyed the surprise of the various colours in each flower, is of course, the magnificent fragrance … strong and fruity and always there! The blowsy petals just urge you to take a sniff and you will never, ever be disappointed by the perfume of.

Abraham Darby is wonderful espaliered to a screen wall or fence – if planting as a free-standing shrub, three roses should be planted .75cms apart and they will gracefully support each other and hold the flowers up.

Because the flowers are so large and filled with petals, this flower is not really suited to the open vase. However, when floated in a bowl, Abraham Darby roses will last many days and then literally, just fall apart. The petals when dried would make a magnificent addition to a pot-pourri and provided you don’t spray chemicals on your roses, one flower from this rose would give a lovely handful of petals to add to your recipe!

  • Huge flowers with surprise of blended colours
  • Magnificent fragrance
  • Ideal to float or use for ‘Pearly Petals’
  • Great climbing rose for fence or espalier
