What’s Blooming? Winchester Cathedral Rose

Winchester Cathedral Rose in Bloom

by Amy on June 13, 2012

The first rose I’ve ever had in my garden has bloomed beautifully this early summer.

Its name is Winchester Cathedral, an English rose, of course.

The David Austin website describes Winchester Cathedral best:

A lovely, white version of the beautiful Mary Rose, It has all the virtues of its parent and is similar in every way, except that its flowers are white with occasionally the slightest touch of buff-pink at the centre. The overall effect is excellent, with a mass of flowers held on a bushy shrub, which blooms at regular intervals throughout the season.

The fragrance is of Old Rose character with a hint of honey and almond blossom.

Named after one of the finest Cathedrals in Britain.

As you can see, it does indeed have a touch of pink in the centre, a stray stripe dotting the inside of the bloom.

I love that this rose is not truly white but more of a creamy shade that is more soft. It smells heavenly.
