the flower is 7-8cm in size, with round petals forming nicely in good order(like Gold Celebration), the color is apricot.
I think the flower endures better than most Austins, it lasts on stem around 5 days. but the color does fade.
the shrub is small in size , and most flowers face to the ground , with makes you hard to appreciate the flowers.
It likes to flower, like most austin shrub roses.
the fragrance is only mild, with tea scent. As I am a fragrance lover, i won't keep it(send it to my friends)

In the hot CA sun, Pat faded to a most unattractive pink color. Yuck. Weak necks and small shrub as you say and constant bloom, its' one virtue, IMO. I discarded mine after the first season because I couldn't stand looking at the faded pink.

strange that i haven't seen the pink tone in Pat yet,it's just pale apricot(not orange), maybe due to the cold here(it's winter now, about 5 degree Celsius). IMO, Austin company is really boasting the fragrance of some of its productions.

Where I lived in CA it got very hot and dry in summer and many roses faded in the bright sun. PA might show better color in a more temperate climate.

I really tried to like this rose, but it never worked out. It has a lot of the flaws of the early 1900s orange polyanthas, which is that the plant is consistently in mildew, and the color fades rapidly to a really trashy shade of off-pink. For landscape roses, Fire Meidiland is an orange hint of scarlet, is also smaller scale, and it does not mildew here. Flower Carpet Coral is also okay, but it is single and very airy, which doesn't always give the full effect in landscape roses.

Its a cold, windy night here in Charleston and I'm poring over roses on HMF. I love your commentary, Michael. I lol for real with the "trashy pink" mentioned here.

I caught an error, too. I meant Ruby Meidiland :D I still have Ruby M., too, although the HMF pics dont do it justice.

When I do a Search/Lookup on 'William R. Smith,' I get the error message "We did not find any plants matching your search name." However, when I Googled the rose name, it led me to the correct page at helpmefind! That page is http://www.helpmefind.com/gardening/l.php?l=2.6582, but you can't access it from within helpmefind.

The search engine doesn't cope well with punctuation. William R Smith finds it.
