Roald Dahl - David Austin Roses

Roald Dahl

“Roald Dahl” is a remarkably free-flowering variety with flowers of a perfect peach colouring. The young buds are a beautiful soft orange-red, the red reminiscent of the blush found on an actual peach. When fully open, they form medium-sized, cupped rosette blooms which are produced almost continuously. Despite their delicate appearance, they are robust enough to withstand even the most inclement weather our climate may throw at them. They have a lovely medium strength tea fragrance with leafy elements and dark fruit notes. Named after one of our best-loved authors, who’s work includes “James and the Giant Peach.” Also available as own root.
