Picture of Young Lycidas-Rose

Austin. The double full blooms of this gorgeous rose are large and deeply cupped even when fully open. They have a strong fragrance and are coloured a deep magenta shade with a silvery hue. A lovely rose that will provide you with plenty of blooms to pick and enjoy. PVR 2008.

Now this is interesting - the Poet Milton introduced the word fragrance to the English language. This very fragrant rose is named after the Milton poem called 'Lycidas' to commemorate the 400th anniversay of Milton's birth. Don't worry there won't be a test when you buy the rose!
