David Austin Roses


A vibrant rose that captures the warmth of a Mediterranean summer and the rich glow of autumn. David Austin Effie™ is feisty, confident and completely mesmerizing with her chameleon-like shades of orange, apricot and yellow. From unassuming, creamy buds to lush cupped blooms of tangerine tones.

Ablaze with color, Effie unfurls into a large rosette of yellow radiance, framed with a halo of soft cream petals. Captivating, bohemian and whimsical. She has a light hint of tea fragrance. Adventurous Effie is magnificent with spiced reds, bitter chocolate and gold but also mingles beautifully in verdant botanical surroundings. A charismatic character that will make an impression on any occasion.
