Rosa ‘The Generous Gardener’

Family: Rosaceae

Rosa ‘The Generous Gardener’ (Ausdrawn) is an English Climbing Rose that was bred by David Austin.  Plants produce beautiful large pale pink coloured flowers that are somewhat peony like in their character.  The rose petals become ever paler, as the blooms age.  David Austin Roses first introduced ‘The Generous Gardener’ to the public, at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2002.

‘The Generous Gardener’ was named to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the National Gardens Scheme, an initiative where wonderful private gardens in England and Wales open to the public, to raise money for charity.

Rosa ‘The Generous Gardener’ grows to around 4.5m (15ft) tall.  This is a rose to plant in a sunny or partially shaded position, in any moist, but well-drained soil.  It’s an ideal choice of plant to use to frame a doorway, grow around windows, to cover an arch, to grow over a pergola, or to clothe the front of your home, or the walls or fences, in your garden.
