Rose Carding Mill®

Antique beauty matched with a modern repeat-flowering habit are the keynotes of hybridizer David Austin’s Roses, and Carding Mill® is an outstanding example of his achievement. Full, slightly nodding blossoms with about 80 petals appear apricot but combine shades of pink and yellow and are deep apricot inside when they first open. Their rich myrrh perfume and the leaves’ disease resistance are also welcome. Own-root. ‘Auswest’

British rosarian David Austin has bred these exceptional varieties to combine the flower forms and fragrances of Old Roses with the repeat-blooming trait of modern strains. Gardenworthy in every respect, they contribute mightily to perennial beds and shrub borders. They also make excellent cut flowers.

Roses offer colors, perfumes, forms, and habits to suit every garden situation. The tenacious efforts of breeders have yielded Roses with the best attributes of different varieties in new forms. Hybrid Teas, lovely as ever, now combine long bloom periods with the vigor to shrug off pests. Shrub Roses bloom for months, rather than weeks, in addition to their ever-appealing hardiness and longevity. A new group is so exceptionally long-blooming and carefree that they are simply called "Landscape Roses." In short, these are not your grandmother’s, or even your mother’s, finicky Roses. Simply choose according to your circumstances. Roses require six or more hours of direct sun per day and a fertile, reasonably moist soil.

Tip: We use Organic Gem® as a foliar feed on Rose bushes in our trial garden and find plants are healthier and perform better throughout the season.
