My Abraham Darby has canes so big my hands no longer fit around them. I planted it in 2015.

I have seen this rose sometimes described as shade tolerant. In my experience (in SE England) it does not like a full day of bright, dappled shade, but can manage if it gets a few hours of good direct sun-- I think you'd want 4 hours near midday for decent performance. If too shady, it does not form a bushy shrub, but a leggy octopus that needs support, but it does still produce some beautiful flowers (just not as many as one would like).

Maybe that's my favourite English Rose.
I have a two-years old plant (on R. multiflora rootstock) grown in a 7-gallon container in a full-sun position. It forms a dense, short shrub. Stems are armed with large, red thorns. Very attractive dense, glossy leaves. Very continuously flowering, flower quality is OK in a rainy summer with almost no maintenance. Exceptional large, splendid, fragrant flowers with tender yellowish-pink color. Susceptible to blackspot but mended quickly when sprayed. Very vigorous growth but seems difficult to form a climber.
