Rose 'Pat Austin'

This exceptional rose flowers in clusters and flowers unfurl in lovely coppery-orange to apricot tones, fading to buttercream with a strong and fruity tea rose scent. The unusual colour is accentuated as each petal’s reverse is lighter than the face, giving each rosette a glow from within. A wonderful hedge or garden specimen. Deep green foliage adds to the dramatic effect. Named for his wife Pat by pre-eminent rose breeder David Austin. DAVID AUSTIN, 1993

How to grow

Plant in an open, sunny position (at least 5-6 hours of direct sunlight each day), in free-draining, neutral soil that is rich in organic matter. Water deeply to encourage strong roots when establishing and provide supplementary watering during dry periods. Roses are heavy feeders and will benefit from organic fertiliser, twice-yearly in heavy soils (spring and late summer) or four times in sandy soil. Deadhead regularly for repeat flowering. Prune in late winter by a third for size and shape, creating an open vase form and removing any diseased or damaged wood.
