St. Alban English Rose Flower
The flowers are beautiful at all stages, from the rounded, globular buds to the fully open, many petaled, shallow cups. The color commences as a rich yellow, gradually softening over time. It has a pleasing fresh scent that is hard to define, but is described by our expert as similar to the fragrance we experience when we walk into a florist’s shop. This is a medium-sized shrub, with gracefully arching growth, numerous branches and nicely poised flowers. There is plenty of luxurious, light green foliage. Named in honor of the Royal National Rose Society, the first society of its kind, which founded in 1876 and based in St. Alban’s, Hertfordshire.
