Princess Alexandra of Kent
Unusually large flowers of a warm, glowing pink that are full-petalled and deeply cupped in shape, all enclosed in a ring of outer petals of a softer pink. In spite of their size, they are never clumsy; being held nicely poised on a well-rounded shrub.
A delicious fresh Tea-fragrance which, interestingly, changes completely to lemon as the flower ages – eventually taking on additional hints of blackcurrants. It is very healthy and grows to approximately 1.4m high
