One of the best red David Austin roses bred to date.
Double/full bloom, deep rich crimson flowers are produced freely and with excellent continuity. When young, their outer petals form a perfect ring around an inner cup; gradually opening out to form a perfect rosette. Petals take on a tinge of mauve just before they drop.
A pleasing, fruity fragrance and a short, bushy growth, Darcey Bussell is an excellent shrub for the front of the border or for planting in formal rose beds. It makes an excellent plant for a large pot and is perfect for gardeners who would prefer a more compact shrub.
Grows approximately 1.2m tall.
Named after Darcey Bussell OBE, the highly acclaimed ballerina.
