David Austin Roses


David Austin Kate™ is a passionate queen with a powerful presence. She rules intensely, deeply and dramatically. The kind of attention-grabbing bloom no one will forget.

A seductive cup bursts to life with wavy petals in regal magenta tones that take on a cool indigo hue as they evolve. She has a sophisticated, pure and fresh scent with hints of lemon and pear drops. The jewel in the crown of any majestic occasion, Kate is in her element when her rich and striking presence stands among softer shades. Equally, she sits well with darker tones for a wonderfully modern look.
