Pat Austin

This rose bears the name of David Austin’s wife. It is really as beautiful as on the image. It only needs a sunny place. I have just seen on Help Me Find that Abraham Darby is one of its parents, certainly this is why.

class: English rose (David Austin 1995)
height: 105 - 150 cm - At us with a strong pruning above 150 cm.
width: 105 cm - At us rather 120 cm. But it is on an extremely rich soil. On a normal soil it is probably smaller than this.
American hardiness zone: Z5 (down to -29 ºC)
bloom: repeated - Since I have planted it on a sunny place, it has been blooming almost continuously.
