Like its namesake’s exceptional novel, "Wuthering Heights", Emily Brontë Rose is a classic. Lush, 100-petal, baby-pink blooms slightly deepen to peachy pink at their centers. In addition to producing numerous flower clusters from the beginning of spring to the end of fall, this versatile rose, also known as Rosa Emily Bronte - grafted ('Ausearnshaw') and English Shrub Rose, tolerates a variety of garden conditions and is cold hardy in zones 5-11. Growing to a maximum height of 3 to 5 feet and spread of 3 to 4 feet, this David Austen shrub rose upgrades any landscape/container from “average” to “extraordinary” the very minute you plant it.
Developed in the United Kingdom, Emily Brontë Rose permeates the air with a tea rose perfume consisting of floral, fruity, and spicy notes that melt into a sweet, citrusy Old Rose fragrance. This redolent hybrid attracts pollinators including bees. A vigorous hybrid, this English rose is disease resistant and grows upright and bushy. To protect it from deer, plant deer-resistant plants such as foxglove, lavender, and foxglove alongside this attractive shrub.
Emily Brontë Rose Care
Get Emily Brontë Rose, a repeat bloomer, off to a good start. Plant it in a hole the same size as this rose’s root ball, or about 1.5 feet x 2 feet, in a spot that gets 5 or more hours of direct sun and has loamy, slightly acidic, well-draining soil with a pH of 6.0 to 7.0. Amend the soil if needed with compost. Provide this cut flower with 1 to 2 inches of water weekly. Topdress the root zone with compost at the time of planting, and fertilize once or twice a month with a rose-specific fertilizer that has more phosphorus/potassium than nitrogen to encourage blooming.
Emily Brontë Rose requires moderate maintenance. Prune it in March/April. Trim dead, diseased, and/or damaged canes. Cut back the remaining canes by a third. Doing so will help maintain this vigorous grower’s shape, prevent disease, and encourage flowering.
Emily Brontë Rose Spacing
Grow Emily Brontë Rose in containers, borders, and hedges. Allow 4 feet of space when growing this shrub as a specimen and 3 feet of space when planting it in a group. In a thriller-spiller-filler combination, this classic rose is utilized as a thriller. Create lovely floral arrangements by combining these roses with alstroemeria, Baby’s Breath, eucalyptus, lavender, lilies, mini hydrangea, snapdragons, and sage.
