Properties and uses:
There is something a little special about white roses – they are all purity and light – and yet really good white roses are rare among English Roses and Hybrid Tea Roses alike. This is because white roses are very difficult to breed. The rose 'Claire Austin'® bears pleasingly cupped buds of a pale lemon shade which gradually open to form large, creamy-white flowers of typical English Musk delicacy;
Their petals perfectly arranged in concentric circles, with a few more loosely arranged in the centre. They have a strong fragrance based on myrrh with dashes of meadowsweet, vanilla and heliotrope. It forms an elegant, arching shrub with plentiful, medium green foliage. Strong and particularly healthy. Undoubtedly our finest white rose to date.
Claire Austin is David Austin’s daughter. She has a nursery which specialises in hardy plants, including the country’s finest collection of irises, peonies and day lilies.
