Bred by David Austin, the Queen of Sweden Rose certainly deserves pride of place. Forming apricot-pink, upward-facing cups that turn soft pink with age, the Queen of Sweden will not disappoint. This English shrub rose is a repeat bloomer with wonderfully scented flowers and a manageable height of just 5 feet.

The Queen of Sweden English Rose forms an upright and bushy shape of dark green foliage that beautifully sets off the glowing flowers. A myrrh scent makes the flowers a delight whether left on the shrub or cut for a vase. This royal beauty is perfect for growing as a specimen, adding to a mixed border, or forming an informal low hedge.

Queen of Sweden English Rose Care

The Queen of Sweden Rose is happy in full sun to partial shade. As with other English roses, she prefers a rich and loamy soil with good drainage. Best grown in consistently moist soil, Queen of Sweden requires frequent watering during the growing season to prevent the soil from drying out. An organic, slow-release rose feed applied as directed will help maintain plant health and encourage the best blooms.

As the flowers go over, deadhead to encourage new buds to appear. In late winter, using clean and sharp pruners, cut the stems back by about 30% to an outward-facing bud. 

Queen of Sweden English Rose Spacing

Over time, the Queen of Sweden Rose can grow to 5 feet tall and 3 feet across. If planted in a group, you can space each plant around 3 feet apart.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
