Gabriel Oak is a magnificent English shrub rose with large, many-petaled rosette blooms. The blooms are a striking shade of deep pink, with the outer petals paling slightly over time. The beauty of the blooms is enhanced by a wonderful, strong fruity fragrance.
A vigorous rose, it forms a very shapely, broad, rounded shrub with mulberry purple stems and dark green foliage. It is a repeat-flowering rose, so you can enjoy its beauty all summer long.
Gabriel Oak is named after the beloved character in Thomas Hardy’s novel, Far from the Madding Crowd. It is a fitting tribute to a man who was strong, resilient, and full of character.
Easy to care for, it will thrive in most climates and prefers full sun but can tolerate partial shade. It is also drought-tolerant once established.
To plant Gabriel Oak, choose a location with well-drained soil. Use with Mycorrhizal Fungi to help establish roots and encourage good plant health. Amend the soil with compost or manure before planting. Water the rose well after planting and continue to water regularly, especially during the first year. Prune the rose in the spring to remove dead or diseased wood and to shape the shrub.
Gabriel Oak® is a beautiful and fragrant rose that will add a touch of elegance to your garden. It is a long-lived rose that will provide you with years of enjoyment.
