Deeply-cupped 'The Mill on the Floss' has densely packed pink petals that are picotee-edged in carmine-red. “These delicate-looking beauties are exceptionally strong shrub roses that bloom their hearts out, early summer till frost,” says Michael Marriott, technical director and senior rosarian of David Austin Roses Ltd in Albrighton, England.
