Good red roses are never easy to breed, so  David Austin are particularly pleased to introduce Darcey Bussell as we believe it is one of the best and most healthy red roses we have bred to date. Its beautiful flowers are produced freely and with excellent continuity When young, their outer petals form a perfect ring around an inner cup; gradually opening out to form a perfect rosette. The colour is a deep rich crimson that takes on a tinge of mauve just before the petals drop. It has a pleasing, fruity fragrance with hints of green.
