Origin of Name

The Brontë Society asked us to name this rose to celebrate the bicentenary of the birth of the novelist, Emily Brontë. Her much-loved novel, Wuthering Heights, was published in 1847, a year before her untimely death at the age of 30. It is a dark tale of passion and revenge, centred around the relationship between Cathy Earnshaw and Heathcliff.

English Shrub Roses

English Roses have natural, shrubby growth which makes them ideal for both rose borders and combining with other plants in mixed borders. The more compact English Roses work well in rose beds, whilst taller varieties can be trained against a post and rail fence. Most varieties will perform surprisingly well in partial shade with at least four or five hours of good sun a day. English Roses as shrubs look best when planted in groups of three or more of the same variety. They will then grow together to form one dense shrub, which will provide a more continuous display and make a more definite statement in the border.
