Description

One of our most beautiful English Roses. It bears its flowers high up on wiry stems, giving it an airy profile not unlike that of herbaceous anemones (or windflowers). The blooms commence as cupped buds and open to dainty, rather informal and slightly cupped flowers of soft lilac-pink. It is remarkably disease resistant and repeat flowers well. There is a charming Old Rose fragrance, with hints of apple and cinnamon.

Origin of Name

We chose to name this rose after the common name for Anemone because it holds its flowers with something of the grace and poise of the windflower.
