In 1986, David Austin decided to paint in bright pink some 80 petal flowers. To complete his rose, he gave it a strong, refined fragrance and then he named his masterpiece Gertrude Jekyll.
That’s how this spectacular floribunda, a rose full of colour and romance, came to life and it should find its place in all gardens around the world. Certainly it shouldn’t be missing in any of our gardens, in Barlad, Azuga, Timișoara, Murfatlar or anywhere else our friends tell us they would like to enrich their lives with this wonderful rose.
Its large, spectacular flowers will bloom repeatedly throughout the season, reminding you every time you walk through the garden you care for so dearly that you have made the right choice.
We noticed at Famous Roses that Gertrude Jekyll really enjoys the sun, but you can plant it just as easily in shady areas. This rose will grow up to 120-140 cm in height. If the sapling won’t catch on, even though there's little chance of it happening, you can be reassured, because we offer a growth guarantee for absolutely every rose we deliver.
Quality 1+ (premium) Year 2 bushes, very sturdy, grafted on the best rootstock in the world right now, which gives the roses vigour and great resistance over time.
