Positive winterkill On Jun 9, 2009, winterkill from Walworth, NY (Zone 5b) wrote:

Like many David Austin roses, Carding Mill opens one color which changes to another as the flower ages. It begins a beautiful peachy orange color, and mine is now, several days later, a pale apricot pink. The fragrance is wonderful too, a strong, fruity rose.

Neutral Joan On Nov 14, 2008, Joan from Belfield, ND (Zone 4a) wrote:

According to David Austin's 2009 Handbook of Roses, they named this rose for the Carding Mill valley in the Long Mynd in the U.K.
