Noble Anthony

In Hungarian I just call this rose “Nemes Tóni” (Tony Noble), as if he were a jovial steward of estate from a novel of the 19th century author Kálmán Mikszáth. At us it has an illustrious task, it stands at the entrance of the spice garden together with its twin brother. He shows his gratitude for this eminent post with a nice compact form and a continuous blooming.

class: English rose (David Austin 1995)
height: 90 - 150 cm - At us it is usually around 120.
width: 90 - 150 cm - At us it is rather around 90 cm.
American hardiness zone: I have found no data, but at us it feels well.
bloom: repeated
