William Shakespeare 2000 is striking and one of the best crimson English Roses to date. It is a superb variety with exquisite blooms that are a rich velvety crimson gradually changing to an equally rich purple. The flowers are deeply cupped at first opening out to a shallow quartered cup. This rose has growth which is neat and upright with each stem bearing a number of flowers. The fragrance is strong and that of Old rose which is not always found in deep red roses such as this.
David Austin started David Austin Roses in 1969 with the aim to combine beautiful flower forms and fragrances of old roses with the wider colour range and repeat flowering of modern roses. They are specialists of old shrub species climbing and modern roses and are an internationally recognised and award-winning company.

Type of Rose: English Rose - Old Rose Hybrid Shrub
Height: 106cm (3.5ft)
Spread: 76cm (2.5ft)
Planting: Plant as soon as possible and make sure the roots do not dry out. When planting the base of the stems should be about 7.5cm below ground level. If immediate planting is not possible keep the roses in the sealed bag or box in a cold but frost-free place for no more than two weeks.
Soil Type: Roses will grow in a wide range of soils though whatever type they are in they do appreciate good soil preparation. Adding a generous quantity of well-rotted manure or garden compost before planting will help to ensure strong growth.
Planting Position: Plant in a location with at least a few hours of sun each day and where the roots of the rose will not be in competition with the roots of plants - especially trees and hedges.
Supplied as: 1 Bareroot plant.
