'Crawfish Étouffée’ is a special rose that resulted from hybridizing two award-winning and fragrant parents, the Meilland rose ‘Dee-Lish’ and the David Austin rose ‘Lady of Shallot’. The inspiration for the name came from our breeder Andrew, as he is from Southern Louisiana. The color is a unique red with hints of russet orange and resembles boiled crawfish in appearance. The fragrance is fittingly floral and spicy, and the foliage is reminiscent of bay leaves, which are an essential ingredient in Cajun cuisines. Combined together, the overall effect will take your senses to the New Orleans French Quarter, where sounds of traditional Jazz music and smells of good cookin’ fill the air.

The growth habit of 'Crawfish Étouffée' strongly resembles ‘Lady of Shallot’ with loose, informal, and graceful architecture when fully established. If we consider the parentage of ‘Crawfish Étouffée’, ‘Dee-Lish’ is cold hardy to zone 5a, and ‘Lady of Shallot’ has been reported to be cold hardy to zone 4 in Finland. Therefore, we assume that ‘Crawfish Étouffée’ will be cold hardy to at least zone 5. ‘Crawfish Étouffée’ blooms from Spring until frost throughout the season and possesses the disease resistance of its parent ‘Dee-Lish’.
