Graham Thomas Rose

July 3, 2014

Graham Thomas rose was bred by David Austin in the United Kingdom in 1983. It is named after Graham Stuart Thomas, a British Old Rose expert. This is a bright yellow rose with the old rose shape. The cup shaped flowers are of medium size with fat buds and a radiant golden yellow.  There is a medium-strong, fresh tea rose fragrance and a hint of spice, with a cool violet character typical of its color group. It has attractive smooth green foliage and repeats flowering from early summer onwards.

This is one of the most widely sought-after of the English Roses. Although classified as a shrub rose, it tends to grow more vigorously and can be used as a sprawling climber in warm climates. Like other English roses, it offers the old-fashioned form and fragrance of old roses and the repeat-bloom characteristic of modern roses.
