David Austin English Rose Mill on the Floss


  • Title:  David Austin English Rose Mill on the Floss
  • Description:  David Austin English Rose 'The Mill on the Floss' bears large clusters of deeply cupped blooms which open wide to reveal a small boss of stamens. At first, the flowers are a lovely mid pink, verging on lilac pink. As the flowers open further, the color pales, with individual petals beautifully defined by their carmine-red edges. The dense flowers are a little under 3 inches across, with approximately 100 petals each. The flowers are held nicely above the foliage, where they nod gracefully on gently arching growth. The medium-strong fragrance is sweet and fruity. It makes a bushy shrub, growing to about 4.5 feet tall by 4 feet wide in cooler climates and significantly taller in warmer ones. Plant in full sun or partial shade, with a minimum of four to five hours of good sun per day. Hardy in USDA Zones 4 – 10. Available in 2020 by online and mail order from and in 2021 at independent garden retailers coast-to-coast. Named for The Mill on the Floss, a novel by English writer George Elliot (Mary Ann Evans), published in 1860.
