Planting with Pink Roses

Pink is the master of adaptability. Simply by planting with different combinations of pink roses you can create a myriad of styles. Create soft sugary pathways flanked by delicate blossom pinks, plant a fun, fruity border with fuchsia and orange, or take a more regal approach to pink by combining rich magentas and red-pink jewel tones. Classic and forever a firm favourite, pink is the colour that comes in every shade imaginable.

Silas Marner

(Ausraveloe) English Shrub Rose

Unfussy and dependable, a relaxed mid pink rose with handsome red stems

A dependable, unfussy rose with medium-sized, cupped, soft mid pink. There is a relaxed quality in the almost ruffled petals which are set around an attractive button eye, each one pale on the reverse and faded at the edges.



He displays a delicious medium-strong Old Rose fragrance with accents of fresh lemon, green banana and apricot.


Named after the dependable and kind hearted hero of George Eliot’s classic novel Silas Marner: The Weaver of Raveloe, a story set in rural Warwickshire about overcoming setbacks and finding happiness.

The contrast and variation of green foliage is the secret to why pink roses work well, without being overly fussy. Touches of grounding green and glimpses of bold red growth add a toughness to a classic pink rose bed. The green of the leaves, symbolising nature and heritage, coupled with petals of vintage pink is a palette worthy of any country home interior.
