Rose:   Alnwick Castle

Class:   Shrub

Date of Introduction:   2002

Hybridizer:   David Austin

 

I had ‘Alnwick Castle’ in my garden in New York and I bought one for my garden in Charleston.

‘Alnwick Castle’ has beautiful pink flowers, about 120 petals, cup-shaped buds that gradually open to deeply cupped flowers with pointed edge petals. The color is soft pink with pale pink edges. It is bushy, relatively upright, 4 ft. tall by 2 ½ ft. wide and stays compact. It continues to bloom all season long. Foliage is polished green and perfectly complements the flowers. It is hardy, fairly disease resistant and has a good Old Rose fragrance with just a hint of raspberry.

‘Alnwick Castle’ rose is named for The Alnwick Garden in the UK which has a wonderful collection of roses.

 

Tip #29 – Give others credit for what they do. Show your appreciation of what they have done by saying “thank you”.

 

Until Next time. Stop and Smell the Roses.
