Huntington Gardens, southern California November
Close Up. In my Zone 8b garden, Charleston, SC the blooms are not as dark as in published photos.
Very pretty and fragrant!
Blooming in partial sun in East Texas, July 2008
Lovely rose, lovely fragrance! Nice, low growing shrub rose, good color. Blooms droop, as with most of the Austin roses.
I like this rose, but it's currently low-growing, so I have to practically get on my knees to smell it, but it has a good fragrance here.
