I love David Austin roses.  I currently have six of them.  This one, Pat Austin, is one of the best.  She blooms continuously, from about first April into November or later.  The color is amazing and the scent enticing, smelling strongly of citrus. Pat does not like to be cut and brought indoors where the blooms last only a day.  But since the shrub sits right outside the garden room I can see them all I want anyway.  : )

  1. Wow, that is a beautiful rose. Even if it is on the orange side :) I'm starting to understand why gardeners love roses. I always said I wouldn't have them...I don't really know why, they just weren't a favorite...but I see now how easy they are and how much they really can take care of themselves. And how they bring instant glam to a yard.
