David Austin Carey

Out of stock

This charismatic rose radiates natural beauty and mingles beautifully with cottage garden flowers, herbs and foliage. Held elegantly on long, strong stems,'Carey's' blooms are beautiful at all stages. They begin as very large, plump buds with pale pink outer petals, gradually unfurling to reveal mid-pink petals with an almost lavender hue. Once open they form classic, cupped, quartered rosettes, with many delicately ruffled petals filling the heart of each bloom. Overtime, each bloom reveals a cluster of pretty yellow stamens. The blooms hold their shape for a week. With many delicately ruffled petals filling the heart of each bloom. Overtime, each bloom reveals a cluster of pretty yellow stamens. The blooms hold their shape for a week.'Carey's' beauty is matched by its delicious scent. Much admired by David Austin's fragrance expert, Robert Calkin, he describes it as a “fresh rosy fragrance with an unusual hint of cedar wood”.'Carey' is expected to be a very popular choice for weddings and events. Its subtle shades blend well with most colour schemes, although it looks particularly lovely when combined in bouquets and arrangements.
