Rosa ‘Harlow Carr’

Family: Rosaceae

Rosa ‘Harlow Carr’ (Aushouse) is an English Shrub Rose that was bred by David Austin and introduced at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show, back in 2004.  This rose was named after the Royal Horticultural Society’s garden in Yorkshire.  It was one of four rose cultivars that were released together; each rose cultivar was named for one of the Royal Horticultural Society’s UK gardens.  This simultaneous rose release was part of a special commemoration, to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the Royal Horticultural Society.

This is a delightfully fragrant rose.  Rosa ‘Harlow Carr’ produces medium pink coloured blooms in abundance; this rose delivers flowers from the ground up, creating a rounded shrub that’s covered in pretty pink flowers.  ‘Harlow Carr’ rose blooms have something of a resemblance to a Charles Rennie Mackintosh rose drawing, both in the pink colour of the bloom and in the form of the flower.

Rosa ‘Harlow Carr’ grows to around 1m (3.5ft) in height and 1m (3.5ft) wide, depending of course, on the soil type and the plant’s growing conditions.  This particular rose is a great choice of plant to use to create a hedge, to grow as a container plant, or to plant directly in the soil, in the beds and borders of your garden.  Plant Rosa ‘Harlow Carr’ in moist, but well-drained soil, where your rose will enjoy full sunshine or partial shade.
