Cardinal de Richelieu
David Austin Recommended Variety
One of the darkest coloured roses. The colour begins as mauvish-pink in the bud, becoming mauve as the blooms open, and finally turning deep rich purple. The flowers are quite small and, as they develop, they reflex back almost forming a ball. ‘Cardinal de Richelieu’ is an excellent garden shrub with arching growth, plentiful dark green foliage and few thorns. It requires pruning, thinning and generous feeding to ensure it reaches its full potential. There is a light fragrance. 5 x 4ft.
