I love the small plant size but prolific, gorgeous flowers of this rose in my San Francisco East Bay garden. I love cutting the blooms and bringing them inside.

This has been a very poor performer for me in Arkansas. Today I dug it up and trashed it. This will probably be my last ever Austin rose.
