Rosa ‘Elizabeth’

Family: Rosaceae

Rosa ‘Elizabeth’ (Ausmajesty) is an English Shrub Rose that was bred by David Austin Roses.  This rose was launched at the Royal Horticultural Society’s Chelsea Flower Show 2022.  Named in honour of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II; David Austin’s ‘Elizabeth’ rose was released in May 2022 – to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

Rosa ‘Elizabeth’ grows up to around 1.4m (4.5ft) tall; forming a shrub that extends to around 1.4m (4.5ft) wide.  Naturally, the eventual size and form of each rose will vary according to individual growing conditions: the soil, site, weather, and aspect the plant is given.

Plant Rosa ‘Elizabeth’ in a bright and sunny or partially shaded area.  This rose will grow in any moist but well-drained soil but plants will be happiest when grown in a rich and fertile clay loam.  When considering where to position Rosa ‘Elizabeth’, choose a spot where this rose’s sweet perfume might be appreciated – perhaps near a patio, path, or seating area.

David Austin’s new ‘Elizabeth’ rose produces pretty flower buds that open up to reveal medium-sized, sweetly scented flowers.

Roses are not very drought tolerant plants, so you will need to water ‘Elizabeth’ roses once a week in times of drought, during the spring and summertime.  Give your plants at least one full bucket of water per rose (if not two) every time you water.  Twice a year, mulch around your plants with a layer of homemade garden compost.

It’s also important to dead-head Rosa ‘Elizabeth’ flowers as they fade.  This is a repeat blooming rose that will flower from May or June until November or December, or whenever the cold winter weather eventually curtails your plant’s flowering for the year.
