Comments Ambridge Rose has one of the most alluring fragrances among roses; it's big, round, soft, feminine. It suits the deeply chaliced shell pink blossoms perfectly. The lovers of fragrant roses at Heirloom Roses call it "One of David Austin's finest introductions." To make much garden impact, though, it needs to be planted in multiples of three.
