Rosa Graham Thomas

Graham Thomas is a rose bred by David C.H. Austin released in 1983, and named for the horticulturalist and populariser of old roses, Graham Thomas. A small shrub of 1.2 metres (3 ft 11 in) in its native England, it can grow up to 4 metres (13 ft) into a small climber in warmer areas.

Graham Thomas has been described as ”the most popular” of Austin’s creations[1] and the one that fixed his popularity with the public; it was the first Austin rose to win the Royal Horticultural Society’s Award of Garden Merit at the Chelsea Flower show ten years after its introduction in 1993.

It was named The World’s Favourite Rose, entering the Rose Society hall of fame in 2009
