Hi, I am interested in having this rose in my garden however haven’t been able to find this rose in Toronto, Canada. Are you aware of where I can purchase this rose or its very close equivalent? The only place I have found is online at www.davidaustinroses.com but very expensive.
Dear Rose Lover,
You have chosen a beautiful rose to add to your garden. Searching for a local retailer is always a challenge. As Master Gardeners, we do not favour commercial providers, but I do have some links to help you.
The Canadian Rose Society is a volunteer club that has a Toronto address. You will find the email and street address in the Contact section of their website.
www.landscapeontario.com. This is a professional organization, located in Milton, that has members who are rose specialists. Follow the links in their website also.

Sadly, yes, David Austin roses are very expensive.
