Bursting with Promise and Color

David Austin’s Handbook of Roses 2021

David Austin Rose’s enchanting annual treat for U.S. and Canadian gardeners has arrived: the David Austin Handbook of Roses 2021/USA Edition is available now, bursting with promise and color just when winter has us gasping for both. To request a Handbook copy at no cost visit, email or call 800-328-8893. Supplies will go fast, as Spring 2021 mail-order demand for David Austin English Roses is already exceptionally high, and requests for the new catalog are high, too.

For Spring 2021, David Austin’s North American collection features 122 varieties of sumptuous English Roses, all with the charming traits — exquisite flower forms, heady perfumes, excellent good health and abundant, repeat bloom from early summer through fall—that have made Austin’s English Roses the best loved roses in the world.

The famed British rose breeder’s book-bound Handbook of Roses is as suited to bedtime reading as it is for shopping. Now completely re-envisioned and brimming with gorgeous photography, the 120-page catalog is meticulously crafted for expert and novice gardener alike. Throughout, thoughtful detail is presented with stylish clarity. New, easy-to-follow graphics and symbols communicate at a glance everything one needs to know.

Mail-Order Roses Delivered for Planting in Early Spring

All roses in Austin’s North American mail-order collection are available as bare-root stock. New introductions typically sell out early.

Bare-root rose shipping season runs from January through May, with orders delivered at the right time for planting in a recipient’s area. Bare-root roses are live plants, shipped without soil in a dormant state. Planted in the cool soil of early spring, they quickly establish strong roots. The full collection is available as grafted stock. Selected varieties also are available own root, either as bare root stock or in 2-quart pots (U.S. only) shipped in either April-May or September-October. Besides mail order, many English Roses also are available at fine U.S. and Canadian garden centers that carry Austin roses. These are offered in 2-gallon pots, ready for planting throughout the growing season.

All David Austin roses sold in North America are grown in the U.S. and shipped from Austin’s U.S. headquarters in Tyler, Texas. David Austin Roses Limited is a family-owned business based in Shropshire, England. Austin-bred English Roses are sold in more than 30 countries.
