Gertrude JekyllReview by Jer

Gertrude Jekyll has been our favorite rose of five. It blooms like crazy and the blossoms are beautiful and fragrant. I’m in Eugene, OR, where temperatures are usually moderate, but we had two winters of ice storms that coated my roses with 1/4” of ice & they’ve made it through. I’ve prune it back in January most years & it rewards me with roses for months. It gets more shade than sun & still does great. (Posted on 6/5/2018)

This is my favorite rose in our zone 8 garden, amazing fragrance, hardy, with little or no black spot and only gets morning sun. I would highly recommend her. (Posted on 5/24/2018)
Stunning fragrance that never lets you down.Review by Windchase

The fragrance of Gertrude is amazing! Lemony old rose that is just joyful. She blooms and blooms all summer and into the fall. Love this rose for so many reasons. We live in zone 7. She will need a sunny, airy spot to do her best. (Posted on 2/8/2018)
Love this one!Review by Temecula Gal

I've grown this rose at two houses I've owned and its an incredibly healthy rose with gorgeous and fragrant blossoms as stated, however, there is a secret to maximizing this rosebush and its blooms and that is this: You MUST cut it way back after it blooms in order to get more blooms, its a rosebush that puts everything out at one go, and then needs "whacking back" in order to stimulate the next big burst of blossoms - trust me on this one!

This is my favorite David Austin rose. I live in Seattle. Planted this one in a whiskey barrel. Blooms heavily around June, then repeats in summer but not heavily. I love the color of the blooms, like an antique pink. I sigh every time I walk by it (Posted on 8/14/2017)
Plusses don't cancel the minusesReview by Rainqueen

I've tried several D.Austin roses and this has not been a good performer here in Portland, OR area. The first bloom in the spring is wonderful- covered with very fragrant flowers and light green foliage. Then it sits there and drops its leaves. The second year, I tried cutting it back for a rebloom and had a little success. It is plagued with blackspot (I don't spray but put under a south-facing eave and practice good sanitation, water, fertilize, and air-circulation). It has very twiggy growth of the shrub types and is covered in small thorns. (Posted on 12/10/2016)
BeautifulReview by Jacqueline H

This rose is so beautiful in bloom there is no way that a photo can do it justice. The silvery white backsides of the perfectly pink petals make this rose look luminous in bloom. Also it is the most strongly fragranced English Rose I have my garden next to Evelyn (although Evelyn is not a very vigorous bloomer and has grown very slowly). Would highly recommend Gertrude Jekyll planted in groups of 3 or more along a path--would be stunning and smell so good! (Posted on 10/1/2014)
Old Rose Fragrance is StrongReview by linners

If you love old rose fragrance, you can count on Gertrude Jekyll! A single bloom can perfume an entire room. And of course the vivid pink quartered blooms are very pretty. This is an oldie but a goodie! (Posted on 4/20/2014)
