Welcome to all my friends sharing the same passion for flowers!
For those who live nearby I could offer some cuttings. Just choose from my list of roses and leave a message. I'll be more than happy to see the population of roses growing. Anything, for a flowery world!
Those who grow roses in their garden grow also roses in their heart. And this world will be better.

Intoxicating Fragranced Roses - Jude The Obscure











"Jude The Obscure" is bred by Davis Austin (UK, 1989). The breeder says about this rose:

"Its flowers are very large and of incurved chalice shape. Their color is a pleasing medium yellow on the inside of the petals and a paler yellow on the outside.

It has excellent, strong and almost
completely disease-free growth. This rose is particularly fine in a dry climate, although it may ball in the rain.

A
very strong, unusual and delicious fragrance with a fruity note reminiscent of guava and sweet white wine.

Named after the character in Thomas Hardy’s novel.

4 ft. x 4 ft. or 8 ft. as a climber ".

We simply can't argue with Mr. Austin. This rose is indeed magnificent.

So:

- shrub English Rose Collection

- medium yellow, apricot, cream shading colour, lighter reverse.

- 55 to 70 petals.

- full, borne mostly solitary or in small clusters, globular bloom form.

- blooms in flushes throughout the season.

- height of up to 4' (up to 120 cm)

- width of up tp 4' (up to 120 cm).

- as a climber - 8' or 250 cm.

- very disease resistant indeed.

- Zone 5 to 10.

Use minimal pruning, otherwise the growth will be diminished.
