Thomas a Becket - David Austin English Rose


  • Title:  Thomas a Becket - David Austin English Rose
  • Description:  2015 North American Introduction: 'Thomas a Becket': Whereas David Austin's English Roses often recall an Old Rose in look, this rose is closer to a species rose, being more natural and shrubby in growth. The large red flowers are shallowly cupped, opening as informal rosettes, with petals that quickly reflex as the flowers age. The attractive color is elusive, a shimmering light red paling to a carmine red, making it difficult to capture in words or in a photograph. It has an Old Rose fragrance with a strong lemon zest character. Details: Repeat-flowering. The double flowers are 4-inches in diameter with approximately 65 petals each. Grows to 4 feet tall x 3 feet wide, or more according to pruning. (David Austin 2013, Auswinston).
