Eustacia Vye® (Ausegdon) David Austin Rose Plants 

Eustacia Vye is a David Austin English rose you can fall in love with at first glance, with its pretty salmon and apricot pink flowers that open to shallow cups, then mature to gloriously ruffled, deeply scented blooms. The overall effect is a wash of subtly different shades of pink, from bud to full flower, from June right through until October, or even later in a mild year.
The scent, on a warm day particularly, is deeply fruity, with fresh, clean notes of citrus combined with the richness of ripe guava. It's a gorgeously scented addition to our range of roses.
The new shoots are a lovely burnished brick red, which combines beautifully with the pink buds and blooms.

Eustacia Vye In Your Garden

Eustacia Vye is a strong, vigorous shrub, so it's a reliable performer, even in trickier, more windswept borders. She will do well in a pot, as long as you keep her watered, and mulch with compost or manure in spring.
Alternatively, grow in a dedicated rose border, planting several in an informal group for a glorious show and fabulous scent all summer long. She'll need a fair amount of sun to perform at her best, but will still be fine in semi-shade. Use her to line a path and you'll have a scented walkway to rival any other.

All shrub roses look great underplanted with perennial geraniums (blue ones are best), or alongside purple or pink lavender varieties. Pair with a deep claret scented shrub rose for a colour combination that is pure poetry.

Did You Know?

Named after the beautiful, spoiled anti-heroine of Thomas Hardy’s The Return of the Native, Eustacia Vye, who was a snobbish, ungrateful woman and unfaithful wife who sharply divides readers between those who think that she richly deserved her pointless, watery death, and those who think she should have been drowned much earlier... Despite her overarching flaws as a human being, Eustacia is the embodiment of exotic sensuality and rebellious dreams in the context of a humdrum rural English life, far from the madding crowd where she so desperately longed to be.

Introduced at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show in 2019 by David Austin.

Planting Instructions

How to plant Eustacia Vye Roses

Choose a spot with as much light as possible. Dig a hole sufficiently deep to allow the rose to be planted with the graft union at soil level and with plenty of room for its roots which should be spread out. Improve the soil from the hole by removing roots, weeds, large stones and other rubbish and mixing in about 25% by volume of well-rotted compost or manure.

Position your rose so its roots are spread out, wet them and sprinkle them with Rootgrow mycorrhizal fungi. If planting pot grown roses gently loosen some roots out of the ball before planting.

Then backfill the hole with mixed soil and compost, firming it gently as you go. Keep the union at the level of the surrounding soil. Water in thoroughly.

Read more about how to plant roses here. Water in your newly planted rose thoroughly. Water again a day or two later and then keep watering in dry spells. Sprinkle over some blood, fish & bone in spring, or mulch with well-rotted manure. Prune from late autumn to early spring to an open goblet shape, ideally to outward-facing buds
