William Morris' David Austin Old English Rose. English roses are a group of roses introduced in 1969 by the English rose hybridizer David Austin. They have the full flower form and fragrance of old roses but bloom repeatedly and come in more colors.
A Shropshire Lad - Climbing Rose by David Austin - pretty much a classic. Very fragrant, with a fruity tea rose scent. Disease resistant, repeat flowering and - I was surprised to learn - almost thornless. - Gardening Go
Heritage Rose: Another outstanding English rose, Heritage bears petal-filled soft-pink blooms that smell of sweet lemons. Many gardeners appreciate that it has fewer (at least than most roses) thorns on its canes and good disease resistance.
