Rosa ‘Young Lycidas’ (David Austin 2008, Ausvibrant)

Rosa ‘Young Lycidas’ – repeat-flowering English Old Rose Hybrid with approximately 90 petals. This is a variety of classic Old Rose beauty. The flowers are quite large and deeply cupped even when fully open, the many petals arranged in a charming way. Their color is new to English Roses: a blend of very deep magenta, pink and red – the outer petals tending towards light purple – although this is in contrast to the outside of the petals, which are quite silvery in appearance.
