Lady of Shalott is 4 years old and size in my garden z5a WI is 5'x4'. Almost always has gorgeous blooms on it, and is very reliable. Average annual rainfall 46" here, average to alkaline soil. This rose has been through -26 degree polar vortex and is doing fine. She takes the wind and rain like a champ. I highly recommend it and wouldn't be without it in my garden.

Thanks for this feedback! I'm Z5b Mid-MI on an open hilltop, so hardy roses are a necessity. Hearing that LoS does well for you, in a similar climate, puts this beauty on my Must Have List.

Like most of the English roses, this one is not well suited for the southeast US. Blackspot and defoliation in South Carolina, zone 8a. Very lanky canes here.

Agreed. It didn't even survive long enough here in Maryland to get to enjoy those lanky canes. It could hardly even leaf out before the new leaves were spotted and falling off.

For those of you who has the climbing version, what's the average maximum heigh? do you thing I could cover a pergola?

Is there a climbing version? The Lady her-selves isn't that vigorous, to be able to cover a pergola in my opinion/experience.
Some other Austins are. Both suitable as a shrub and as respectable climbers.

yep, it is sold only in warmer countries (I guess is the regular LadyOS that performs as a small climber in a warmer climate), anyway the DA website states her as a "small climber" with a 250cm height, just trying to figure out from personal experience if the average heigh is approximately the same as DA website.

Here in England.. approx zone's grown as either a medium shrub about 5 feet or very large shrub to 10-12 feet, especially against a wall or trellis.. according to conditions, and requirements.... the structure takes the rose upwards..
Because of its rather stiff nature, upright growth which can be fan trained, I would doubt its suitability for a pergola, except against the upright posts.. if I wanted a rose for across the top of a pergola, I'd want one that hangs its blooms somewhat downwards... LoS has outward or upward facing blooms mostly..

Abraham Darby is very apt to cover a pergola, with its neighing heads and long flexible canes. Flowered repeatedly and abundantly the last 3 years from 1/2 April till the frosts kick(ed) in.
Reply #5 of 7 posted 22 NOV 20 by Marlorena has a good scent too doesn't it Jay-Jay?.. I've only sniffed it once and I thought it was nice... good to know that information.. I'm up to my neck in roses right now, but it's one I keep meaning to try... not easy to find here these days.. Abraham Darby that is..
Reply #6 of 7 posted 22 NOV 20 by Jay-Jay
It has a very good scent. Strong rose/citrus. Harmonious.
We wrote about Abraham Darby earlier Marlorena. When not sold in Britain... it's relatively easy to propagate from cuttings or by oculation/bud-grafting on a rootstock.

There is no climbing version - they are the same exact rose, only listed as a "climber" or a "shrub" and completely dependent on pruning/training, growing region etc.

She is vigorous though...
