Promise of Rose Gardens

The family behind David Austin Roses combines a calling for saving old English garden roses with a quest for developing the perfect flower

David Austin’s English Roses are grown in public gardens around the world. If you can’t make it to the gardens in Shropshire, England—where the gardens usually reach their peak towards the end of June, with a second peak around mid-September—seek out these gardens here in the United States:

Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens, in Richmond, Virginia
International Rose Test Garden, in Portland, Oregon
FioLi Gardens, in Woodside, California
Biltmore Estate, in Asheville, North Carolina
