(Ausfence) Kew Gardens
Small, single flowers held in very large heads, rather like a hydrangea, produced almost continuously from early summer into autumn. Soft apricot buds open to pure white, with a hint of soft lemon behind the stamens. It is extremely healthy and almost thornless. The growth is bushy and rather upright - a group of two or more bushes creating a mass of white, as though covered with snow. David Austin, 2009. [...]
Named in celebration of the 250th anniversary of the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew in London. We recently replanted the rose garden behind the famous Palm House, returning it to the layout of 1848 and filling it with a wonderful mixture of English Roses, Old Roses and other shrub roses.
