David Austin ‘Windermere’ rose

Gorgeous, creamy and scented Rosa ‘Windermere’ from David Austin

Today, I’m grateful for this lovely ‘Windermere’ rose, sent to me to trial and planted in spring 2015. Ultimately growing about a meter tall and wide, this rose easily fits into the Microgarden. And, unlike some David Austin roses I’ve tried, the heavy-headed flower doesn’t sag. It’s creamy white and deliciously fragrant, the kind of perfume that transports me back to my grandmother’s garden. At the end of the season, the foliage still looked healthy. Crossing my fingers for a great show in 2016.
