David Austin English Rose 'Olivia Rose Austin' combines beauty, fragrance and excellent repeat bloom with breakthrough health and disease-resistance. Named for the grand-daughter of rose hybridizer David C. H. Austin, the soft pink rose is considered one of the best roses the Austin team has introduced to date. It produces masses of blooms over an exceptionally long bloom season that starts three full weeks ahead of other English Roses and continues till frost. The soft pink flowers have an Old Rose formation that opens to a lovely cupped rosette. The medium-strong fragrance has distinctly fruity tints. The dark green foliage shows off the flowers beautifully.
