I love my Mary Rose!!! I've only had her for 4 months, & she is already 5 1/2' tall!!! WOW!!! Not too crazy about her fragrance, but she is a beauty & a super fast grower, so I'll be keeping her around as long as she lives! Might even try to root some cuttings in a few weeks, so I can have another bush or two next year! :)

Probably one of the nicest and most unusual medium pinks that I have seen in a rose. A lovely ladylike scent of honey and almonds, too. Just a perfect pink, to me.

According to David Austin's 2009 Handbook of Roses, they named this rose after Henry VIII's flagship that was recovered from the sea after more than 400 years.

It is extremely fragrant. Mine is only in its second season and it's shooting up like crazy. The blooms are the richest pastel pink, thick with petals. The fragrance is a sweet, classic tea.

A great garden rose, cold hardy, vigorous, fragrant and attractive. I cover the base in winter with leaves, but the upper branches stay alive as well here in the Chicago area. There's some blackspot, and I spray with Funginex, and Japanese beetles do bother the flowers.
This is the easiest rose I've found to reproduce from cuttings. Just stick them into the ground with a little rooting powder in September, give some winter protection.

I like this Austin rose, but it blows easily. It blooms quite a bit and needs some winter protection.

I grew David Austin's rose 'Mary Rose' in the Chicago suburbs (zone 5). I had no trouble with cold-hardiness at all. A beautiful rose; not good for cutting but lovely as a shrub.
