William Shakespeare 2000
‘William Shakespeare 2000’s’ exquisite blooms are of the richest velvety crimson, gradually changing to an equally rich purple. They are deeply cupped at first, the flowers soon opening out to form shallow, quartered cups. This rose has the strong, warm Old Rose fragrance that we expect, but do not always find, in deep red roses. It forms a neat, upright shrub; each stem bearing a number of flowers.
