4x3ft or 8-10ft as a climber. Here is a variety of unusual colouring for an English Rose, an attractive red with a touch of orange. Deeply cupped flowers gradually develop into an open, slightly cupped rosette. Benjamin Britten is a useful rose to provide a highlight among the softer shades of most English Roses. It is of medium height; vigorous, with dense growth and excellent foliage. The fragrance is intensely fruity, with aspects of wine and pear drops. Named to commemorate the life and work of the famous English composer, conductor and performer.
