>L.D. Braithwaite – David Austin Roses


L.D. Braithwaite – “Auscrim
– introduced 1988 by David Austin Roses –
We are seeing a few blooms from our recently planted L.D. Braithwaite.
The deep crimson coloring of this rose make an eye catching display in the garden.

It’s growth habit seems to be very similar to our “Mary Rose” shrubs.
I have also noticed the fragrance of this rose seems to develop as it ages, giving off a light old rose scent.

Current “Austins” under cultivation in our garden:
Mary Rose, L.D. Braithwaite, Benjamin Britten, Golden Celebration

    >Hi Chris, does this rose seem to be bothered by humidity?


  2. >Jim, I suspect it will fade quickly in the hot humidity of an Alabama summer. We planted this rose just as the real heat had subsided and it's color cannot be captured with my camera. It is a deep crimson red. Good to hear from you. Hope you are well.
