Plant details

A 1999 introduction, it's one of the best of rose breeder David Austin's group of English Roses, and it constantly gets rave reviews. The apricot-orange flowers (with a richer tone in cool conditions), are nicely set against the healthy, dark green leaves, and the blooms appear individually and in clusters with a powerful, fruity scent. The shape is upright and arching, making it a good choice for the back of the border. It can also be grown as a short climber. It is named after Crown Princess Margareta, the grand-daughter of Queen Victoria.
