Buttermilk and lace – David Austin Wedding Rose Patience


David Austin Wedding Roses are dedicated to creating beautiful fragrant roses to help you celebrate your wedding or important event. David Austin started with a vision in the late 1940’s with the aim of creating a more beautiful rose. Initially he worked on creating roses to be enjoyed in the garden. Inspired by appreciation of this work he set about creating beautiful fragrant rose to be used in the home and for special occasions.

One of the fragrant garden roses from the David Austin collection is the David Austin Wedding Rose Patience, a delightful buttermilk rose with ruffled petals reminiscent of fine lace. The creamy yellow buds gradually open out fully to form flat, medium-sized rosettes.



The many frilled petals are beautifully arranged around a classic button eye. There are approximately 165 small petals packed into each bloom of the David Austin Wedding rose Patience. There is a fresh old rose fragrance with elements of fruit, lilac and myrrh. The fragrance is medium-strong at first, but softens as the blooms age, later developing lemony notes.

The romantic color helps to make the David Austin Wedding Rose Patience a highly desirable wedding flower. Depending on how they are styled, these versatile, creamy white blooms can bring a traditional old-world character to floral designs. In more contemporary interpretations, ‘Patience’ has a natural radiance, freshness and charm.
