Bathsheba (Auschimbley) Rose

Bathsheba is a climbing rose introduced in 2016 by David Austin, and it's proving extremely popular. It's easy to see why, with such handsome shallow-cupped rosette-shaped blooms, which start deepest apricot at the centre and fade gradually to a pale peachy yellow, almost white, on the outer petals. The overall effect is of fabulous abundance. Then stick your nose deep into one of those perfect flowers (although you really don't need to as the scent is so powerful) and you'll breathe in an invigorating mix of classic myrrh with hints of tea and honey. This is one of the most strongly scented and profusely flowering roses in our range of climbing roses.

Keep her close

Given her fine scent, this is one rose you'll want to keep close by. Grow Bathsheba over a sunny wall, pergola or fence – east, west or south-facing is fine – or, better still, around a doorway where you can take a lungful of her myrrh and honey fragrance every time you go in or out. Her pretty apricot colouring is a dream combination against honeyed stone or a brick wall. And, being one of David Austin's newer roses, she's fairly disease-resistant, too. All climbing roses pair well with clematis – a deep-purple variety or even a white one would be particularly pleasing. Or team with another climbing rose such as Gardeners Glory, whose simple, elegant pale yellow flowers would make a lovely contrast to Bathsheba's large-flowered ruffled glory. Another good pairing would be with simple, white Starlight Symphony.

Yet she comes from afar

David Austin named this climber after Bathsheba of Far From the Madding Crowd. Thomas Hardy's beautiful, vain and courageous heroine seems a fitting muse for a rose of such undeniable charms…
