Can I just see your Austins???

kansas.girlJune 11, 2014

I love looking at Austins. I have one, Boscobel, and I'm waiting for my 14 buds to open! Hopefully it will be soon but the anticipation is killing me! I want to add Graham Thomas and LEH this season, too... Maybe Sharifa Asma. There are so many beauties! Can I see yours please?

Here's Abraham Darby, the first rose I bought years ago, which whetted my interest in and eventually led to antique roses.

So beautiful! I have him on my wishlist for next season. I'll pamper him all he wants if I can get blooms half as gorgeous as yours!

Strawberry Hill. An all-round stunning rose.

My first rose, Teasing Georgia, and the prettiest of all the DA roses: Constance Spry, -still adolescent but magnificent none-the-less.

Darcey was also a bare-root bought this winter from DA. She's amazing -- more prolific than Munstead Wood, and vigorous??!! You betcha! Definitely needs a bigger pot, or to go in the ground.

Here's a few of my favorite Austins in my garden:

Molineux

Anne Boleyn--a shorter one

Pretty Jessica--another shorter one

Lady of Shalott--one of my favorites

Mortimer Sackler--a bigger one, but my present one is not recovering well from our brutal winter. : (

Queen of Swedens (3)--perhaps the loveliest Austin, but not as good on re-bloom as I'd like.

William Shakespeare 2000--doesn't do full justice to the dark beauty of this rose.

Jubilee Celebration--another one of Austin's most beautiful roses, but suffers from "weak neck" syndrome too often.

Munstead Woods--my favorite Austin

The Pilgrim climber

That's not all my Austins, but it is getting late at night and my sleep-filled eyes force me to bid you Night, Night!

Enjoy.

Kate

P.S. Joe--that Delbard is truly lovely!

Adam your radio times is stunning! Kate all of your Austin's are healthy and gorgeous. I hope mine look as beautiful as yours in the future.

Kate - you have a few that I really love, and a few that I really want :) The Pilgrim is on my "to buy" list, and Lady of Shalott looks so beautiful!

Molineux: the colours on this one are spectacular. Each bloom is a slightly different blend of yellows.

Sharifa Asma: the scent is just divine, a slightly larger rose in my garden.

I wish I had pictures of some of my other favourites but I can't find them right now. Fair Bianca is a beautiful, compact white. The Prince has a velvety looking rich colour that I have never been able to capture correctly with a camera, but is one of my favourites. Pretty Jessica and Evelyn are both about to bloom and they are beautiful too but I have no photos yet (maybe in a week or so).

I actually bought Happy Child off a suggestion from a forum member (who I think might have been dublinbay/kate, lol) as a nice, compact yellow and it is also about to bloom, for the very first time, in a couple days so I'm very excited to see it!

Lurker here. I only have Heritage, A.Darby and Evelyn. But saw many Austins for the 1st time in May. 'Lady of Shallot' and 'A Shropshire Lad' were drop dead gorgeous and will be added as soon as there's room). I do love the pinks and peaches.
Strong contenders are 'Harlow Carr' (great lavender cast pink color), Gentle Hermione (delicacy without being wimpy but heard she fades to white in summer's heat), Carding Mill and Port Sunlight.

Gentle Hermione

A Shropshire Lad

Port Sunlight had smaller flowers that truly glowed viewed striaght on.

Harlow Carr had lovely large flattish flowers (great color)

Carding Mill (warm and wonderful)
