Wedding Wednesday :: The Charity Rose

How romantic and lovely are David Austin’s Charity ( formerly known as Auswasher) Garden Roses? “Large Rosettes of pale pink with peach overtones open fully. The quartered form of the rose often reflects back to give it a millinery look. There is a prominent spring green stamen that adds interest to this delicate colored rose. There is a strong rose fragrance that makes it a popular wedding and event rose. ” from David Austin Website.
I will admit that for many years I thought its name was Auswater as that was the name I had seen in writing so many times. Upon visiting David Austin’s website I realize its original name was actually Auswasher.

  1. Love this rose….. but not the greatest performer for me at times. But when you get it and it’s perfect, it is a show stopper.

  2. I’ve ordered these roses a couple of times from Florabundance, can’t ever seem to get them.
