A new David Austin rose, Desdemona, has peachy-pink buds that open to reveal beautiful pure white chalice shaped flowers that have an attractive hint of pink in the early stages. Desdemona will produce these myrrh scented blooms over a long period, with flowers maintaining their shape during wet weather. This rose grows to around 1.2m tall and 1m wide, forming a compact and healthy bush, and can be grown as a rose border or combines beautifully with perennials or other roses in a mixed garden.
