Tranquillity Rose

The Tranquillity Rose is David Austin honing his craft to dizzy heights. A rose of purest white, with a hint of cream created by the sheer density of ruffled petals held in a perfect rosette shape. The buds are spherical and washed with pink, opening up into rounded flowers. Of Musk Rose extract, the foliage is consequently much lighter than most roses and there are very few thorns while its fragrance resembles the scent of apples. Being a bushy rose its many, many flowers grow from the ground right to the top of the shrub which has an upright habit and stems that arch elegantly at their tip. As with so many of the newer David Austin roses, Tranquillity is pretty disease free and it has an enormously lengthy flowering season.

Zen in the Garden

Because of the embarrassing number of flowers that this rose produces from top to toe, it suits being part of a mixed border combined with other summer gems like Nepeta or Lavender or, above all, in a bed with other roses. The purity of its colour contrasts with the complexity of its petal arrangement giving it interest without stealing the show. Being white it fails to clash with any other plant but rather like pearls are meant to flatter the complexion, so Tranquillity reflects light onto other roses. David Austin is confident that contemplation of this rose will bring about the sort of zen state for which we all strive. If you are looking for a slightly looser petalled David Austin rose then look no further than his classic white Winchester Cathedral or consider magnificent Macmillan Nurse. Other roses that display similiar shaped flowers include the unbeatable A Shropshire Lad, a pale pink shrub rose or the apricot The Lady Gardener.

Normally when David Austin names his latest creations he delves into our historical past or into the recesses of our literature but here he explores the effect that a plant can have on the psyche. We're not guaranteeing anything but in this time of mindfulness and me-time - Tranquillity roses are probably worth a try.....
