This is an incredibly healthy rose. We have her growing without chemicals whatsoever and she's doing just wonderful. The soil was rather poor to start with but was improved with bentonite and lots of compost. She's standing in semi shade combined with Geranium Azure Rush. We only prune lightly so we leave 60 cm or two feet standing in February. This results in a very rounded, flamboyant plant with arching strong canes. They can uphold the gorgeous salmon pink, quartered blooms. They slowly fade to light pink and apricot. They come in small clusters. The flowers exude a strong fruity fragrance similar to its parent Charles Austin. Rain doesn't seem to bother the blooms but in very hot and sunny weather the blooms can burn so afternoon shade can definitely help. What's interesting with this rose is how she already makes new fresh growth from the base when she's still blooming so she can go on blooming for a long time. No blackspot and no powdery mildew. After three years she's reaching maturity and she's just stunning! Highly recommended rose

Park Abbey rose has a very unique color: Salmon pink/red with even apricot tones. The smell is typical for most roses: One day it's moderate and the next its really strong. But I can testify it has a wonderful fruity fragrance. It's not a short rose, it can reach 150 cm or even more if used as a small climber. In our Belgian climate it has two to three flushes so reblooming is very good. The leaves are dark green almost silvery. It's very disease resistant. Try it, you won't be disappointed
