In The Netherlands we have to cut "Abrikoos Queen Elizabeth" (the name the breeder Verschuren gave it) very short, or else you get an awfull looking framework of old and dead wood because it's so vigorously growing. But it's a very healthy rose and you can spot it in many frontyards in my region. Flowering and growing from spring to winter, or untill real frost kicks in. Then it's still bearing lots and lots of flowers and unopened buds. It is not the most beautifull rose I know, but it's a real workhorse! (I like the Belgian workhorses too) A no nonsense rose! With one rose you have a handfull, as you can see on one of my photo's.

I actually managed to almost kill this one... for some reason it does not particularly like my garden. Lovely when just opening, but quickly loses the form and subtlety as the bloom ages.

I would like Your garden to grow in... if I were a rose!
But wasn't it almost killed by the bad winter of 2012 in Your garden? (and not by You?)
In mine it was. And it cost a few years to recover a bit.

No, I have it for years, took it along from when we still lived in Groningen (8 years back). Had it planted in 2 good spots in this garden since, never really grew well for me. Could be a clone problem of course, but I haven't seen her anywhere in the gardens around here in the villages, which is strange, since she is usually available in Tuinland and alikes. Did not look too good in Winschoten either, so maybe she does not like specific soils/conditions. Actually, now when she is exiled to the fence bed, where it is a lot of sand from the roadworks, she is doing a bit better than she did in the normal bed.

Wim Oudshoorn writes in his book: "WIM OUDSHOORN over ROZEN", on pages 104 and 114, that Apricot Queen Elizabeth is in fact a sport of Queen Elizabeth, just like Scarlet Queen Elizabeth (coral-red) and Royal Queen (white).
This book is (in my opinion) a lot more informative and correct than the previous one of the same author!

Wim Oudshoorn states in his book "Rozen" (page42), that Apricot Queen Elizabeth is a mutation of Queen Elizabeth.
But in my opinion he postulates more in that book, that is questionable/pretentious.
