The Poet's Wife

The Poet’s Wife is a lovely newer introduction from David Austin. With large rosette blooms in a unfading golden yellow, outer petals have a paler creamy hue. Often forming in clusters of up to 6, attractive purple stems that contrast against the golden tones of the flowers well. Roses have a strong rich fruity fragrance. Foliage is semi-glossy in green with newer purple toned shoots.
