Gardeners' Notes:

I had received this rose as a gift; it was not one I might have chosen out of a catalog. However, after growing it my yard for two seasons, I can say that it is now one of my favorites.

I have it planted it on the southside of my yard and it blooms abundantly from June through October in my Connecticut garden. The flowers are mildly fragrant and beautiful. They do nod a bit under the weight of the flowers, but this is not a problem for me since there are so many blooms that the shrub is completely covered at times. They look great when I fill a vase with them too.

According to David Austin's 2009 Handbook of Roses, they named this rose for Mr. Ulrich Meyer, after his wife Georgia.

Teasing Georgia has been the winner of a number of awards, including the Henry Edland Memorial Medal that is awarded annually to the most fragrant seedling of the year.

I recieved this rose as a gift last Mother's day. It was from David Austin and looked great when I got it . We then had the worst drought in recorded history here . I kept all of my roses alive , except one, but none of them thrived like this one. It grew and bloomed like crazy with very little water. We have had lots of rain this fall and winter , thank goodness, and I can't wait to see what she does this year. Already looking good.

My garden is in zone 6. I've never done much to protect my roses over the winter, and usually they die over the winter or shrink from year to year. This is the first one I've had that seems not to be damaged at all (except the multiflora weed roses). It's grown vigorously and produced plenty of good-sized flowers. The flowers tend to nod a bit under there own weight, though.
