Grow: 'Imogen' Roses

For a home with this sage and yellow color palette, we recommend elegant 'Imogen' roses — a shrub rose from English breeder David Austin. This gorgeous bloom has a button eye, like most so-called "old roses" (a class of rose grown before hybrid teas debuted around 1867). Its cheery, lemon-yellow buds open to frilly flowers that gradually become a soft, cream color. You can expect blooms from early summer until frost.
