Abraham Darby

Another David Austin Rose!!
Love this Rose.  It has that Old Rose look and the amazing smell to go with it.

I always collect the Rose petals to dry.  Such a smell!

It can look like different Roses from bud to full bloom.
All from the same bush.
Abraham Darby where it lives in my garden.  Facing west.  This picture was taken in May and it was not very big but now is at least 5' tall.  I am about to cut it back.  It flowers prettiest when it is not so huge.
I had problems with thrips in the spring but they seem to be mostly gone but not entirely.


  1. Hi Jeannie. It is such a beauty. I have been considering it for my revamped rose garden but I am not sure it will make it here in my zone 5.It seems all the beauties are zone 6 and up which is frustrating me. LOL! I am trying to decide if it is peach or pink or both in color. It is lovely though.

  2. Gorgeous rose! I love all its looks.

  3. Abraham Darby can grow to enormous proportions - take a look at this one..
