Brother Cadfael®

Type: David Austin

The double,deeply cupped light pink flowers are among the largest of any Austin rose and make wonderful arrangements. The strong fragrance marks this as one of the best. Named for a character in the popular English murder mystery series once shown on PBS stations. If you love very large fragrant rose blooms 'Brother Cadfael' is the rose for you. The giant truly globular, peony-shaped blooms are soft pink with darker pink centers. They are produced on a sturdy, bushy plant with flowers and leaves in proportion. In the heat of summer the blooms may be somewhat smaller.

Grows well in Pacific Northwest, large blooms and great fragrance.Review by Washington Rose
Brother Cadfael does well in the Pacific Northwest; it is a tall, prolific bloomer. Color is bright pink, very pretty. Foliage is pretty and disease resistant. Love this rose. (Posted on 6/16/2017)
