Named to celebrate 350 years of friendship between England and Sweden, following the signing of a treaty in 1654, this shrub is uncharacteristic of English roses in that it has a particularly upright habit, making it ideal for formal planting or hedging. The flowers are soft pink and at their early stages are tinted with apricot. They have a delicate, myrrh fragrance and have have been bred for disease-resistant qualities. Introduced at the RHS Chelsea Flower show 2004 by David Austin Roses.
