Gardeners' Notes:

Love to look at and smell this rose. It's medium sized, but full of petals and so fruity smelling. You cannot put the blooms in a vase because they are so heavy headed and droopy, but not all roses are meant to be cut. It can be admired constantly close up on the plant. I get oodles of buds, new canes, and I am training it to climb up a very old dogwood. it doesn't even get full sun; it gets speckled light, and it performs beautifully.

Absolutely beautiful peony-like apricot blooms, and it has a pretty good black spot resistance. Unfortunately, the stems are so thin and weak that I can't even put them in a vase without them drooping.

According to David Austin's 2009 Handbook of Roses, they named this rose for Crown Princess Margareta of Sweden, who was the granddaughter of Queen Victoria and an accomplished landscape gardener.

I just purchased one on clearance at a garden center for $2! I sure hope it grows well - it looks beautiful!

This a a very beautiful rose and well worth the effort. I got her as a bare root and took very well. Some black spot after rainy weather but easily controlled. A wonderful fragrance and a true beauty. The show stopper in my garden and the block!

I have found that the stems on this plant are not strong enough to hold up the flowers. But even worse, this thing keeps blackspot no matter how hard I work to get rid of it. I really don't like this rose.

just recently planted my bare root and it's budding leaves. Will see how it does here in zone 11.

9/24/04 - very pleased with this and my other Austin roses (from J&P). Flowers have 80-120 petals, color is toward the pastel rather than bright and fades toward yellow. Described as having fruit scent, I only occationally get scent from any of my roses, which may be due to garden conditions.
