I think this image displays well why the roses of David Austin are irresistible. As if we saw a detail from a Baroque painting. And in addition this rose, in contrast to those old ones, blooms more than one time in a year.

class: English rose (David Austin 1990)
height: 75 - 185 cm - At us around 150 cm with a strong pruning, and even so one of its branches grew as far as the other side of the road.
width: 105 - 120 cm
American hardiness zone: Z5 (down to -29 ºC)
bloom: repeated
