Charles Darwin®

Type: David Austin

Strong and delicious fragrance which varies between a soft floral tea and almost pure lemon according to weather conditions. David Austin states the blooms of 'Charles Darwin' are some of the largest to be found in the English Roses. The flowers are very full and rounded at first then open to a shallow cup. They are a lovely shade of rich yellow - almost Old Gold - sometimes with lemony or sandy tints. It makes a most attractive, bushy and eye catching shrub that is very healthy and would be ideal towards the front of a mixed border.

Wonderful rose for the noseReview by Evolving Beauty
I planted Charles in May and fed it with fish fertilizer and it now has 7 or 8 buds on it. It has a very lemony scent and is absolutely beautiful, starting as a sandy color, evolving to almost pale yellow. CD and Jude the Obscure -- are in a race to be my favorite. (Posted on 8/9/2017)

favorite David Austin roseReview by Melanie
This is my most prolific, healthy, and best cut flower of all of my hundreds or roses.
If I had to pick one rose to grow, it would be this rose. Love the scent, love the color of the buds, the yellow cupped flowers, it is a must have rose (Posted on 5/5/2017)
