‘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. There is a particularly strong and rich Old Rose fragrance, similar to some of the Old Bourbon Roses. It forms a fine, bushy, medium-sized shrub; the flowers, leaves and growth all in proportion.
