Rose of the day – The Pilgrim

This climbing English Rose was planted in the old rose garden about 15 years ago.  What we call the old rose garden was originally built and developed to celebrate our silver wedding anniversary.  As we approach our ruby wedding anniversary this year it is so lovely to see that most of the roses we planted back then have grown away strongly and are still producing beautiful displays year after year.

The Pilgrim produces quite large soft yellow rosettes of the form that typifies a David Austin English Rose.  It is repeat flowering with a medium strength fragrance and blooms from June into early autumn.
