(Ausbernard) Munstead Wood
Bears very deep, velvety crimson blooms, with lighter coloured outer petals. They are large cups at first, becoming shallowly cupped with time. There is a strong Old Rose fragrance with fruity notes of blackberry, blueberry and damson notes. The bushy, spreading growth forms a broad shrub; the young red-bronze leaves later turn mid-green. David Austin, 2007. [...]
Munstead Wood was the name of the horticulturalist and garden designer Gertrude Jekyll’s home in Surrey, England. It was designed by the architect, Sir Edwin Lutyens, whose professional partnership with Jekyll was one of the most influential of the Arts and Crafts movement. Gertrude Jekyll wrote her many gardening books at Munstead Wood and it was her home for most of her life.
