My Anne Boleyn Roses Update

Posted By on April 29, 2013

Anne Boleyn rose As promised, here is a photo of one of my Anne Boleyn roses in full bloom – isn’t it gorgeous?!

Lots of people have asked me where I got my roses from. I bought one from www.davidaustinroses.com as bare roots and then I was lucky enough to have another three as a birthday present. They are quite pricey but they are beautiful.

    I was so excited to find a nursery in Tyler, Texas that carries the Anne Boleyn roses. I found it through the david austin website you posted. Thank you!

    My AB rose also just came back into bloom this week here in Hawaii, and blesses us with the most intoxicating fragrance. . . I often talk to my plants, but I sing to “her”! Such a lovely tribute rose.

    I have looked and looked Claire, but I’m afraid I can’t find a rose called Elizabeth I, more’s the pity, but, I have found a ground cover one called Kent, which would look lovely growing under Anne as it’s white, there is a patio version of that one too.

    There is one called Lady Jane Grey, a beautiful amber, blushed with pink, and a strong perfume too.

    I think I will be buying these to keep my Anne company, along with one of the thornless ones too, Henry’s romantic view of Catherine Howard, his ‘Rose without a thorn.

    There are two Shakespear roses also, as he’s just had a birthday mentioned on the Elizabeth files.

    It’s a pity none of the Rose breeders haven’t called any of their plants after the other 5 Queens. Or a lovely red one after Cardinal Wolsey maybe a big flamboyant one called Henry VIII too, what pleasure that would give us all ‘dead-heading that one….. 🙂

    I’ve been on the phone all morning trying to track this one down. I have two nursery’s calling me back if they find them in their greenhouse from last season, apparently they went like crazy in the Grove City, Pennsylvania area last year.

      Good luck, I hope you find one.
