Graham Thomas

Another double flowering English Rose from David Austin. Their colour is an unusually rich, pure yellow. There is a medium-strong, fresh tea rose fragrance, with a cool violet character typical of its colour group.

Graham Stuart Thomas OBE (3 April 1909 – 17 April 2003), was an English horticulturalist and garden designer, best known for his work with garden roses, his restoration and stewardship of over 100 National Trust gardens and for writing 19 books on gardening, many of which remain classics today. It is Mottisfont Abbey – a creation that he himself described as a “masterpiece” – where his rose collection found its final home, and where his garden design skills can be best appreciated.

    1. It is a lovely flower – by the way Pat, I don’t seem to be able to comment on your blog again, can you fish me out of purgatory please? I left you a comment about the berries, thoug I think someone else gave you the name anyway.
      Cheers
