Wollerton Old Hall - One of the most fragrant of all English Roses. It has the distinctive myrrh scent which is rarely found in roses. The plump buds have attractive flashes of red. These open to form round, rich buttery yellow coloured blooms which eventually pale to a softer creamy colour. Even when the flowers are fully open, they retain their beautifully rounded chalice shape.
A Shropshire Lad - Climbing Rose by David Austin - pretty much a classic. Very fragrant, with a fruity tea rose scent. Disease resistant, repeat flowering and - I was surprised to learn - almost thornless.
