When the great David Austin decides to breed another rose, it is very important that it will exceed the expectations of the best and most demanding gardeners in the world. The world of roses is a highly competitive and it is no easy matter earning your place in the heart of rose-lovers with so many beautiful and famous contenders, highly awarded by international juries.
Nevertheless, the Munstead Wood is such a successful rose. It is a mesmerizing presence in any garden, a rose that will always stand out in a sea of other roses due to its extraordinary mix of colour and fragrance. An exceptional floribunda, with velvety crimson blooms straight out of romance novels.
As they start blooming, the flowers are large cups at first which then turn into shallow cups. They have about 75 petals each, bear a strong old-rose fragrance with fruity notes of blackberry and blueberry, and repeat-bloom throughout the season.
Here at Famous Roses we noticed what is the best time to let the Munstead Wood mesmerize you, so we suggest you try that at home. Wait for the clouds to gather in the sky and for the first drop of rain to touch the ground. If you go outsided right then and stand in front of this this rose shrub with your eyes closed, you will feel transported in a perfectly manicured garden in a quaint English village.
What you should also know is that the Munstead Wood can reach adult heights of 60-90cm if it is loved and cared for. Which we know it will be, cause we know our clients very well.
