6. David Austin Kate (auschris)

Named in honour of the Duchess of Cambridge, the David Austin Wedding
Rose Kate is already proving to be a popular choice for weddings and events.
The garden-style blooms perfectly complement cottage garden flowers and foliage.

Kate is beautiful at all stages as the long elegant buds with attractive, silvery
magenta pink outer petals gradually open to wide blooms of up to four inches
across. The David Austin Wedding Rose Kate has many magenta pink petals
which give the overall impression of rich raspberry pink. As the roses age the
petals deepen in colour, taking on hints of purple.

The flowers are fully double with exquisitely waved outer petals. Over time
golden yellow stamens are eventually revealed. The mature flowers are in the
style of 18th and 19th century Gallicas, with some of the character of both
Charles de Mills and Tuscany Superb, which are generally considered amongst
the most beautiful of all roses.

The fragrance is a beautifully balanced, pure rose fragrance with what our
fragrance expert, Robert Calkin, describes as having a “touch of after-rain freshness”.
There are also subtle hints of raspberry, redcurrant, geranium and bergamot.
The fragrance varies in intensity as the flower ages.

approximately 165 small petals packed into each bloom of the David Austin Wedding
rose Patience.

The romantic colour helps to make the David Austin Wedding Rose Patience a highly
desirable wedding flower. Depending on how they are styled, these versatile, creamy

2. David Austin Keira (ausboxer)

The Stunning David Austin Wedding Rose Keira has natural charm and glorious,
vintage-style blooms. This unusual rose breaks all the normal rules for the cut
flower industry, because each rose is subtly different in colour, being a beautiful
blend of blush pink and cream, often with warm peachy highlights. Some blooms
have an irregular flush of pink that highlights the edge of the outer petals, creating
a very soft picotee effect. We think that this variation adds to the natural charm of
the rose.

The flowers of the David Austin Wedding Rose Keira are beautiful at all stages: the
small, plump buds opening into glorious, rounded young blooms that eventually
form spectacular cupped rosettes, each with around 100 petals. The edges of the
outer petals have an attractive, lightly waved effect. There is a medium-strong rose
fragrance.

This David Austin Wedding Rose Keira, perhaps more than any other, looks like it has
been freshly cut from the garden. This makes it particularly effective when combined
with seasonal flowers, herbs and foliage for a romantic, garden-inspired look.

The name ‘Keira’ is a charming variation on the ancient Gaelic ‘Ciara’

Color : Blush pink to cream to light pink
Petal Count : 100
Diameter : 10-12 cm
Fragrance : Fruity
Vase Life : 7-8 days
Breeder : David Austin

1. David Austin Juliet (ausjameson)

The David Austin Wedding Rose Juliet was the first of David Austin’s Cut Roses
to be released and is sometimes known as the ‘£3 million rose’. After over fifteen
years of intensive breeding, Juliet combines the beautiful cupped rosette form of
old roses with a very contemporary colour.

The unusual and sophisticated colour of the David Austin Wedding Rose Juliet
was not found in roses of the past and is hard to find among modern roses. Pale
peach buds open to reveal deeper inner tones neatly arranged within the heart of
the bloom. Beautifully cupped rosettes are held elegantly upright on strong stems.
Juliet deserves its place as our most popular variety. A light fragrance reminiscent
of snowdrop and daffodil.

The David Austin Wedding Rose Juliet has the lightest fragrance of our cut roses.
Despite this, it is always one of the most popular of our cut roses for weddings,
commemorations, events and special occasions.

The large, elegant blooms made Juliet utterly different from most other contemporary
cut roses. When fully open, the blooms reveal many neatly-arranged petals nestling in
folds within the heart of the bloom.

Petal Count : 90
Diameter : 10-12 cm
Fragrance : Snowdrop and daffodil
Vase Life : 6-7 days
Breeder : David Austin
