Brother Cadfael bears very large, globular, clear pink flowers, reminiscent of peonies. Despite their size, they are never clumsy and are held nicely upright on the plant.
Brother Cadfael has a particularly strong and rich Old Rose fragrance. It forms a bushy shrub; the flowers, leaves and growth all in proportion. This rose was named after the hero of the Ellis Peters detective stories, which are set in Shropshire where the David Austin nursery is located.
Roses love lots of sun but they will be fine with some afternoon shade. Five hours of sunlight is adequate. Most roses won’t do well in a very windy position but they do need good ventilation. An overcrowded situation makes them more susceptible to disease.
Roses prefer a soil which has good water holding capacity but is never waterlogged. A clay loam is ideal but roses will grow in most soils. Improve light soils by digging in plenty of compost and prepare the ground by deep digging prior to planting.
