The rose of the day! 'Constance Spry'. An amazing rose I have planted at the fence outside the garden.
'Constrance Spry' was the first original English Rose from Davis Austin. It produces magnificent, deeply cupped, pure mid pink blooms of luminous delicacy. They have a wonderfully strong myrrh fragrance. Although it only flowers once in early summer, it is still a very valuable variety. Our tallest English climber; it has large leaves and many thorns. David Austin, 1961.
Constance Spry (1886-1960) was a pioneer in flower arrangement and one of the first collectors of Old Roses in the early part of the 20th century. I love her style ... #clausdalby#blomster#flowers#garden#roses
