photo by Beth Owl's Daughter

Beth Owl's daughter took this exquisite photo of Graham Thomas Roses at her home in Laurel Hill, North Carolina in late May.

Probably the best known of all the English Roses and one of the most popular roses in the world. Graham Thomas’ has been voted the World’s Favorite Rose 
by the World Federation of Rose Societies (WFRS) which represents over 100,000 rose lovers in 41 member countries. It was bred by the incomparable David Austin. 

The award was announced at the 2009 World Rose Convention in Vancouver, when the rose was inducted into the society’s ‘Rose Hall of Fame’.

It is a vigorous variety that makes a good climber and it has a fresh tea rose fragrance, being awarded the Henry Edland medal for fragrance in 2000.

Ideal when grown on a wall where it will repeat flower in several flushes. 
10 - 12 ft as a climber.
