bishop's castle

This is an older Austin rose, but one that deserves to remain popular.

It certainly is not shy blooming. Here is a fall flush, today. 

 The flowers don't have that densely packed look that Austin is famous for.

But they are much more fragrant than Austin gives them credit for.

The bushes are not what you would call compact, but they grow like they are happy to live. 

The bushes tolerate heat and some dryness, although like any roses, stop blooming during very hot spells.

The flowers last a few days, more than many Austins, but less than some hybrid teas.

I've been thinking of getting rid of all my pink roses and having a uniform garden of white roses, but I don't think I could bear it.
