(Northern Hardy) There is nothing that draws as many ‘ooohs’ and ‘aaahs’ in the Rose world as a deep crimson colored Rose. Leave it to David Austin to deliver one of the deep best crimson Roses in years in the form of ‘Munstead Wood’. The plant itself is a compact growing powerhouse with deep green foliage densely held to its branches while new foliage has a contrasting scarlet tinge. Buds are in constant supply from spring right on until fall, opening to a continuous display of fully double, deeply cupped flowers that feature slightly lighter colored petals along the outer edges of the bloom that contrast beautifully with the velour-like, deep crimson petals closer to the center. As they age, the flowers widen and become less cupped and release a strong, mouth watering, old rose fragrance in the garden. ‘Munstead Rose’ displays great disease resistance and a penchant for being in color for long stretches of the summer meaning you will have an ample supply of fragrant blooms to bring inside. Plant this selection in full sun and feed it at least once a year for best performance.
