Product information "Rose England's Rose (in a large container)"

Breeder David Austin named this English shrub rose in memory of Princess Diana – behind this (sad) occasion and the proud name is a very special breeding. The flat, double, intensely pink roses bloom in large clusters, and exude an intense fragrance of old roses during the summer. Intense? Yes, the word “spicy” might be a more appropriate description. The healthy growth is very bushy, so this shrub rose with its reasonably compact growth can be planted well in mixed borders, along with shrubs and other woody plants. As always with shrub roses, it is good to have a small group of three roses in the triangle distance of 50 cm apart in order to achieve the desired effect in combination with the surrounding plants. England’s Rose blooms reliably throughout the entire summer. If it is cut back in February to 10-15 cm, it develops as a rather high floribunda; if it is cut like a shrub rose (cut back to 50-80 cm and reduce the side shoots to one eye) it will grow significantly higher and can reach up to 150 cm.
Of course, the rose’s name refers to Elton John's song "Candle in the Wind" from 1997, which played at the funeral of Princess Diana, England's rose. Here is the first verse of the famous song by Elton John, and the beginning of the second stanza:

Goodbye England's rose
May you ever grow in our hearts
You were the grace that placed itself
Where lives were torn apart
You called out to our country
And you whispered to those in pain
Now you belong to heaven
And the stars spell out your name
And it seems to me you lived your life
Like a candle in the wind

The original song by Elton John, with the original title “Candle in the Wind” came out by the way in 1973.
Roses play a very important role in English history and in storytelling. There were the rose wars between the houses of York and Lancaster, which finally ended with the marriage of Henry VII and Elizabeth of York. From the two houses, the house of Tudor arose; from the white rose of York and the red rose of Lancaster, the red rose with a white centre became a heraldic symbol of England from the Tudor dynasty.

In a figurative sense, the term England's Rose is of course also used for the beauty of the English women - and in this context the above lyrics can then be understood.

So: Roses are generally pretty “English”; today there are few countries where they are so appreciated as in England and in the United Kingdom. And if there is a rose that is perhaps a little more English than the English roses, it’s this: England's Rose.
