The flowers are densely filled with petals, much like antique roses, and most possess a strong fragrance. English roses are a good choice for cutting gardens. Their full, intensely perfumed flowers make sumptuous bouquets. Some varieties climb if left unpruned and can be trained along a fence or arbour.
The symbolism of rose colours is steeped in tradition. Roses inspired people over thousands of years to develop a language of colour.
