DAVID AUSTIN® ENGLISH Shrub Roses

English Roses have natural, shrubby growth which makes them ideal for both traditional rose borders and combining with other plants in mixed borders. Their habit can be bushy, upright or elegantly arching and their height can vary from being quite short to tall. 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.
