Abraham Darby

I could hardly find any place for it in our cool, half-shadowy garden. It did not develop at all, thus I dig it out, placed it in a pot, and by chance put it on one of the sunniest spot in the garden. Then it immediately began to grow. Later I also read that in fact it has to be planted on sunny place.

class: English rose (David Austin 1985)
height: 120-300 cm
width: 90-150 cm
American hardiness zone: Z5 (down to -29 ºC)
bloom: repeated
In our climate it beautifully remonts.
It needs sunshine. In contrast to most English roses, it does not suffer half shadow.
