Rosa Munstead Wood ('Ausbernard') (PBR) - Richly coloured, many-petalled, cup-shaped flowers, that have a wonderfully fruity fragrance, form on this bushy shrub rose throughout the summer. The leaves emerge with a reddish-bronze flush before they turn mid-green, creating further interest in spring.
