Rose 'Darcey Bussell' - 3 Gal.


Rosa 'Darcey Bussell'

There's nothing like a crimson rose to bring out the romantic in any gardener and 'Darcey Bussell' is the first double crimson rose to come from David Austin in nearly a decade. Once you put this dense, very compact, yet incredibly floriferous selection in your garden, you'll declare that it was worth waiting 10 years because it is such a landscape stand out. Its tight, dense form is heavily budded above deep green foliage by mid May with the most perfect, double, full flowers opening freely thereafter, forming the most perfect petal rosettes you'll ever see. A fresh fruity fragrance accompanies each bloom and the plant blooms regularly throughout the season to keep you enthralled for months! Even better, 'Darcey Bussell' is all romance and very little work since it is disease resistant and hardy leaving you little to do but send dreamy, loving stares its way all summer long!
