Enjoy Ascot’s Tercentenary ‘Queen Anne’ rose in your own garden

This year, David Austin is helping us to celebrate the tercentenary of Ascot Racecourse by releasing a new English Rose named ‘Queen Anne’ in honour of our Royal founder. It was launched in true Ascot style at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show in May, when David Austin’s gold medal winning rose garden became the catwalk for our couture creations. Three sensational outfits, designed by Vivienne Westwood and Stephen Jones, were on display, each one representing a different century in Ascot’s long heritage.
The ‘Queen Anne’ roses we planted at the racecourse in March this year, produced glorious pink flowers in time for Royal Ascot week and will provide further flushes of flowers during the summer months. ‘Queen Anne’ is a classic shrub rose, with all the characteristics that have made the English Roses so popular. The medium-sized flowers are packed with many beautifully arranged, pure pink petals. There is a well-rounded Old Rose scent with delicious hints of pear drops. It will form an upright but bushy shrub rose of around 1.2 meters, and has the added benefit of very few thorns. It is healthy and easy to care for, making it an excellent choice if you are a novice gardener. ‘Queen Anne’ repeats in flushes throughout the summer and is ideal for rose beds, mixed borders, large decorative planters – as well as a racecourse!
