I am SO proud of these blooms!

I've been nurturing this rose bush for a while now, and it just gave me an entire bush full of these stunning blooms! I had to cut two to bring them inside!

OMG! Those are gorgeous!!! Every right to be so proud. They are beautiful! How is the scent? I was looking at that rose to possibly replace a couple I am planning on shovel pruning in the winter.

It has a very nice, mild scent. I've noticed that as the bloom matures, the scent tends to fade a little. I definitely garden this one for beauty!

Those are so beautiful--rich and full blooms just like I imagined Boscobel would be. If only I had some room left in my gardens!

These are swoonworthy! With a name like Boscobel I didn't expect these stunners. My kind of rose!

Interesting! I planted 3 Boscobels this spring, which have been covered with blooms, but none of them open like yours. They remain cupped. Do you suppose our New England humidity accounts for that?

Uuughh, if I could do pink in my garden, I would do that one most certainly.

Ingrid, I agree that 'Boscobel' isn't a terribly romantic name, but imagine how I felt when the first Austin rose I fell for was 'Mortimer Sackler'. Named for a wonderful person, I imagine, but not the most romantic-sounding name...

I've seen other images of Boscobel and it is a beautiful rose. Yours is lovely! Some day I may get one.
