David Austin breeds old style roses, the kind that you find in cemeteries and along the foundation lines of old houses long gone. Old roses that smell divine and look like the most delicate peony and ranunculus combo you could imagine. Big fluffy blooms of intense scent. David Austin has bred those old roses (with gorgeous blooms and divine scent) with modern roses that repeat flower. That means flowers all summer long. No 2 weeks in the spring then done for the year like peonies. A peony show also gets killed by the rain by the way.
See those thick roots, attached to a strong stem, with healthy buds already? Notice there is no damage to any of the roots from being dug up. Notice that the roots clearly grew around a mound of dirt, spaced evenly around the plant. That is a great looking bare root plant!
