(Ausdecorum) Darcey Bussell
When young, the outer petals of each bloom form a perfect ring around an inner cup, gradually opening out to form a perfect, medium-sized rosette. The colour is a deep, rich crimson-pink, taking on a tinge of mauve just before the petals drop. There is a light fruity fragrance. It forms a compact shrub with attractive bushy growth. Named after the highly acclaimed ballerina. David Austin, 2006. [...]
