DAVID AUSTIN ROSES IN COMMERCE


Do you know how many David Austin Roses are in commerce?  I have been researching how many varieties of David Austin Roses are in commerce and came up with 187 roses as of March 20, 2012.  The color of the roses was taken from the description on some of the old David Austin rose catalogs that I have and some from the American Rose Society Handbooks for Selecting Roses.  Some letters are not represented because I could not find any.  If you know of any other rose that I missed, you may post it under comments.

Here is the complete list of David Austin Roses:
