The Alnwick Rose®
Type: David Austin
Pretty, rich pink, cup shaped buds gradually open into a deeply cupped flower; the cup a soft pink which is paler at the outer edges - a most pleasing progression. The flowers are beautiful at all stages; this illustrates very well the great variety of form to be found in the Old Rose style. 'Alnwick Castle' has nice rounded, bushy continual blooming growth and produces its blooms intermittently from early summer to the onset of frost. Plentiful green foliage ideally complements the flower. There is a good Old Rose fragrance with just a hint of raspberry.
