Indulge your garden with the timeless elegance of the Rose David Austin – Gentle Hermione. Crafted by the illustrious David Austin, this exquisite bloom embodies the essence of classic romance. Delicate, shallow cups in pure light pink gracefully transition to a soft blush on the outer petals, evoking an aura of refined beauty. Infused with a robust and warm myrrh fragrance, each blossom captivates the senses with its alluring aroma.

As a versatile addition to any garden, Gentle Hermione presents as an attractive, broad shrub with gently arching stems, creating an enchanting display in mixed borders. Its foliage, initially tinged with red before transforming into lush green, adds depth and contrast to its surroundings. Inspired by Hermione, the faithful wife of King Leontes in Shakespeare’s The Winter’s Tale, this rose is not only a symbol of enduring love but also a beacon for pollinators, making it perfect for attracting bees. Thriving in various growing conditions and soil types, and basking in full sunlight from east, south, or west-facing positions, Gentle Hermione offers a touch of grace and sophistication to any garden landscape.
