Are you looking for an English rose with its abundant , rich and flashy blooms? In this section you can find all our range of English roses: choose the one you like best and have it sent directly at your doorstep! The history of English roses starts with one of the best European rose hybridizers: David Austin. This is indeed the man that gave birth to all the English rose varieties, created by his desire to achieve a rose hybrid that could combine the excellent hardiness of modern roses with the gorgeous bloomings and deep fragrance of the Old Roses. In Italy the English roses have achieved a distinctive success in the coolest and most humid areas, but nowadays we can find English rose varieties that are suitable even for the driest areas of the Italian peninsula. Indeed the first English roses, selected for a cool and mild climate as can be found in England, were not very suitable for the hot and dry south Italian climate and were forced into dormancy therefore stopping producing flowers. This problem has now been solved thanks to new hybrids especially created for these climates. English roses are distinguished for their vigorous and bushy growth, with a height that nearly always reaches 120-130 cm. Furthermore English roses are quite frost-resistant but need to be looked after quite often: manuring and pruning must never be neglected. If you wish to buy English roses, on our website there are plenty of choices with a large variety of sizes and colours: purple, pink, red, yellow, orange and white, with many different hues in between.
