The ‘Ella’ rose joins other beautiful varieties within David Austin’s cut rose collection, which have featured in previous royal weddings and become some of the most sought-after bridal roses in the world. Alexandra Farms currently grows 16 of David Austin’s most romantic fresh cut varieties at our farm.

The epitome of understated style, Ella’s creamy, ivory petals unfurl into a beautiful ruffled bloom with a central cluster of golden stamens. Her pure simplicity and fresh scent with notes of citrus and cucumber make her the perfect choice for a wedding.

“We are delighted to name our new cut rose Ella in honor of Lady Gabriella’s marriage to Thomas Kingston,” said David J C Austin, Managing Director of David Austin Roses. “Lady Gabriella’s bouquet is the first bridal bouquet to feature the new Ella rose, which is a tremendous honor for us all. We hope this will be the first of many weddings where Ella’s beauty will be admired and loved. My father would be extremely proud to see his life’s work bringing great joy to such a special and momentous occasion.”
