I have nothing against the original intentions of David Austin, i.e. to produce modern roses with old-fashioned looking blooms. In fact I very much like a number of his releases. What I dislike is how they have become a sort of cult following. I think it rather sad and narrow-minded that people will devote their entire rose garden to Austin cultivars - or to roses from any one breeder for that matter!. I also feel that Austin roses are now all becoming much of a muchness - there really is nothing novel anymore, yet people continue to buy them as though they are obsessed. What is very interesting here in New Zealand is that a local breeder, Bob Matthews, is focussing on producing Austin-like blooms on far more compact floribundas. He has produced an exceptional white named Pure Magic by crossing Sexy Rexy with Graham Thomas; and a very nice apricot bred from Abraham Darby. This line of thinking has a great future in my opinion.
