I'm a scent fanatic, so I was never interested based on the description of "none to mild" scent. However this year I inherited one from my mother in law when her husband passed (it was "their" rose). Even though I still haven't noticed any scent, the bush is fully clothed in dark green lusterous foliage, has good form, and the clear lavender purple flowers kept blooming since April (and are still blooming)! They also have stayed packed with petals and kept their beautiful form thru the heat. And in my no-spray garden, the new Chilli Thrips plague didn't seem to bother them as much as other roses. This rose definitely won me over; it is beautiful! If you love lavender roses, I would recommend it.

The description says ''occasional repeat later in the season''...

This is not my experience.. here in East Anglia, England 2018 it has been a continuous bloomer since May 27 [first bloom]… and now on 18th November it is still flowering, there's no stopping it... this has been one of the hottest driest summers on record, yet it has not stopped this rose... poor dry rubbly soil, no watering, no spraying... it has thrown out a near 6 foot lanky cane though, with large thorns that ' sericea pteracantha' might be proud of... otherwise, an unsung rose worthy of more attention I would say..

Thank you Marlorena. It sounds a wonderful rose.
David Austin says “repeat flowering”.

This rose is an enigma to me; yes exactly as goncmg states, large bush, clean sparkling color, blows quick in heat but great cool weather. But the scent seems extremely variable in my garden. At times, almost no scent. Other times, so strong with an almost bitter creosote note that I can't stand it. Then at times so sweet and citrusy it makes me fall in love with it all over again, and lives up to its legendary reputation. However, I haven't found any rhyme or reason to when it's scents are different; other roses it seems to be dependent on temperature or photoperiod, but this one the differences don't seem to line up with any external factors. Granted, I have only had this rose for 2 years, and moved it over the summer. Maybe it just needs to get established first for the scent to stabilize? Anyone else experienced this?

Does anyone know how this rose grows in a cool wet climate?

I've heard 'Ena Harkness' is better for cooler climates.

I don't have it, but I would just give it a try and see for yourself... I'm afraid I couldn't grow a rose called 'Ena'... it would remind me too much of ''Ena Sharples''... [sorry, Andrew will know]…

Three own-root plants of ‘Crimson Glory’ in different locations in my garden, all from a healthy named plant in my shopping town. My three are all very low, certainly under a foot in height, probably not worth the garden space but when they bloom, I am glad I have them.
I also grow what I believe is ‘Ena Harkness’ on its own roots. This was bred from ‘Crimson Glory’ and on its own roots here, is equally low.

Marlorena, could you grow a rose called ‘Violet Carson’?
