This was an entirely new colour break in English Roses: a bright copper on the inside of the petals, with pale copper-yellow on the outer sides, creating a similar effect to ‘Austrian Copper’ (Rosa foetida ‘Bicolor’). The flowers are large and deeply cupped, the contrasting colours giving a most attractive effect. There is a strong Tea scent with a warm, sensuous background. ‘Pat Austin’ forms a large shrub with attractively glossy foliage. The blooms nod gracefully from the strong, elegantly arching growth, which is in proportion with the large flowers, showing them off to perfection. With its bright colouration, it is a wonderful rose for bringing excitement to a border of softer coloured roses and plants. Named after David Austin’s late wife, who was an accomplished sculptress.
