Nothing quite says old world charm like the humble rose. With elegance second to none and traditionally with a scent to match, it’s little wonder it’s as loved in landscaping today as it was 100 years ago.
Bred by David Austin, the Golden Celebration Rose is one of the finest English Roses on the market with its very large, deeply cupped, fully petaled golden-yellow flowers (55-75 petals) atop dark glossy green foliage. Exceptionally fragrant, this rose will be ideal for our Hawthorn garden design project as it exudes an incredible perfume, a mix of tea rose and fruit aromas reminiscent of citrus, lychee or strawberry. ‘Golden Celebration’ will also keep the heritage flavour of the garden alive and help to balance the old traditional ways with our new modern approach.
Blooming in flushes from late spring until early winter, this is an excellent repeat bloomer.
‘Golden Celebration’ grows up to 1.3 metres and 135cm wide in a compact, rounded, slightly arching shrub. It is best grown in full sun or partial shade in rich, fertile, well-drained soils. While yellow roses are often more prone to black spot, ‘Golden Celebration’ doesn’t seem to be affected by disease. Ideal as a short climber, over arbours and pergolas, in beds and borders, potted and as hedges or screens, this truly is a landscape gardener’s dream plant.
Winner of both the ‘Best Shrub’ and ‘Most Fragrant Rose’ awards at the Rose Awards Day 2000 and the ‘Award of Garden Merit’ of the Royal Horticultural Society in 2002, need we say more?
