Wollerton Old Hall
One of the most fragrant of all English Roses. It has the distinctive myrrh scent which is rarely found in roses, appearing first in
‘Constance Spry’, and later in ‘Scepter’d Isle’. The plump buds have attractive flashes of red. These open to form round, rich buttery yellow colored blooms which eventually pale to a softer creamy color. Even when the flowers are fully open, they retain their beautifully rounded chalice shape. It forms a particularly healthy and bushy shrub with many stems shooting from the base. It remains relatively upright and has few thorns. With its soft coloring ‘Wollerton Old Hall’ will very easily blend with a wide range of color schemes, planted with roses or other shrubs and perennials. Its more upright habit makes it suitable for both formal and informal situations. It should be positioned where its strong scent can be easily appreciated.
