(Ausursula) The Lark Ascending
Graceful, medium-sized, semi-double flowers, of a pleasing apricot, are produced from the ground upwards, and are held in large heads of up to fifteen, nicely spaced blooms. They have a beautiful open-cup shape, loosely filled with about twenty petals, arranged around a central cluster of golden stamens. The light fragrance varies between Tea and myrrh. It forms an extremely healthy shrub with tall, airy growth. Named after the much-loved piece of music by Ralph Vaughan Williams. David Austin, 2012. [...]
The name is taken from Ralph Vaughan Williams’ piece of music, which was recently voted Britain’s favourite by listeners to the BBC Radio 4 programme, Desert Island Discs.
