Rosa ‘The Country Parson’ (Ausclergy) is an English Shrub Rose that was bred by David Austin Roses and launched in 2020. David Austin traditionally launch their new rose introductions in May, at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show, but this show was cancelled due to COVID-19, so a virtual rose launch took place instead.
This rose produces pretty flowers in a lovely golden pastel shade of yellow; as the blooms age they fade in colour and gently pass through every shade of pale yellow, until the blooms have turned a pure snow white.
Rosa ‘The Country Parson grows to 1m (3.5ft) tall; forming a plant that spreads around 1m (3.5ft) wide, depending of course on your soil, situation, and the plant’s growing conditions. Plant in a sunny or partially shaded spot, in any moist but well-drained soil. This rose can be grown in a large planter or planted out in the border.
