‘Gertrude Jekyll’ English Rose

Height: 48″ to 60″
Width: 36″ to 48″
Bloom Time: Summer

While this ‘Gertrude Jekyll’ rose is technically a bush, I am including it in this list of perennials since I am using it as the structure for my summer cutting garden. And it has blooms that are wonderful for flower arrangements.

The plant has beautiful, rich pink rosettes that have a beautiful traditional rose fragrance.

Since it is one of the English roses that was bred by David Austin, it is a healthy and reliable plant that is much easier to maintain than most roses.

At first, the buds look like traditional rose flowers.

But then open all the way out to become beautiful fluffy blooms.
