David Austin Roses

Comments are off for this post.

Okay, all you flower lovin’ people!

Today I am going to chat about David Austin roses. Yes that’s right, David Austins. David Austin is a rose breeder from Shropshire in England.  His aim as a rose breeder is to grow roses exactly how we picture them; delicate, sensual and filled with sweet perfumes. David has created many colours and scents from cross breeding the roses. As well as the classical roses, David Austin also breeds modern roses called hybrid teas and floribundas. Here at Bloomers Florist we supply our brides with stunning David Austins on request, ensuring they fit perfectly with their specific wedding bouquets.

Here is a link to his website, on this page you will find all the different breeds and scents he has to offer:   http://www.davidaustinrosesaustralia.com/australian/search.asp
