I believe that anyone who bought this from Heirloom Roses did not receive the correct variety. The picture posted by Deborah's Rose Garden is the "Spiced Coffee" we all obtained and it is no where close to the description. The color is more cream blending into a pink edge and definitely not a lavender shading into coffee.

Whatever it is, I think it is a good rose for my area (Iowa) - always in bloom, nicely shaped blooms, clustered, sets hips. The issue is it just is not what they sold it to be and they should stop selling it as Spiced Coffee. It would be nice to figure out what variety it is but my internet "research" has not come up with anything specific.

How very sad. In all the years I ordered roses from the Clements I never received a mislabeled plant.

I have received several that were not like the original rose that I had years ago. This is just one of them. The other was Fire and Ice. They have the wrong Mother Plants.

I think the size (cm to inches) was turned around. More like 12 inches than 12 cm.

I am glad to see someone is preserving the Abbaye. It can be a gorgeous rose when well sited, facing east with some afternoon shade in a warm climate. I know, I know, your best real estate, but I found the Abbaye worth the prime spot. It makes a large flower in a dusty peach color and distinctive shape, which unfortunately has rather thin petals. I think this one is for warm, sunny climates only, but very satisfactory therein. Repeat bloom was surprisingly good, and, having been bred in the South of France, I believe, Abbaye is not the water hog many English bred roses are. It makes a medium sized bush, about 5'-7' x 3'-4', and would be well sited along an east property line, as part of an informal hedge, provided there were some protection from hot western sun, which would otherwise fry the thin petals.
