Regular price $46.99

Young Lycidas

English Rose - Shrub Rose

An award-winning rose with fragrant Old Rose style blooms
This is a variety of classic Old Rose beauty. The flowers are quite large and deeply cupped even when fully open; the many petals arranged in a charming, rather informal way. Their color is new to English Roses; a blend of very deep magenta, pink and red – the outer petals tending towards light purple – although this is in contrast to the outside of the petals, which are quite silvery in appearance. The flowers nod gracefully and are produced singly or in small groups on vigorous stems. There is a delicious fragrance that changes markedly with the age of the flower, starting as a pure tea scent and changing to a blend of tea and Old Rose, with intriguing hints of cedar wood.
