This has been an excellent rose for me this year. Purchased bare root from Austin USA in 2016, it has been covered in blooms from spring to fall, very healthy and nicely shaped, dense leaves. I spray fungicide, but Olivia might be good for a no spray garden. A drawback is lack of scent. Hopefully that will develop. Even so, it's a keeper.

.......


Year two, still no scent.

Mine has a very nice fragrance and the first one to bloom this year.

Mine has a pleasant old rose scent, but not a strong one. It's interesting that the latest Austin handbook/web info lists the fragrance as "light-medium" instead of the "strong" it used to claim (see the description right here on the intro page for this rose). But it's a wonderful, healthy rose and makes a great cut flower (unlike most Austins).

Thank you! I should add that I do not spray it, and in my garden (west coast - Vancouver area, temperate and rainy), it has shown no hint of disease.

Most of Austen's yellow and yellowish orange roses have Noisette parentage. You might want to contact a local rose society before ordering this one. However, much can be accomplished with a south facing wall and copious water.

That's an interesting assumption. I know Austin has mentioned using some Noisettes, but I note that many of his large-flowered yellows descend from 'Aloha' and/or 'Yellow Cushion'. Those he acknowledges having Noisette ancestry tend have smaller flowers in clusters. I'm sure there are exceptions, but considering the yellow-shade roses for which he has disclosed ancestry, I think it's safe to say that many don't have Noisette ancestry, and will likely be as cold-hardy as most Floribundas.

I live in 6a and until now no harm at all from (even bare)frosts. It can get big and might be used in flowerbeds or as a solitaire.
No harm to the petals from scorching sunlight.
No long vase-life, just like most of the Austins. Fair scent.
Relatively disease free, even without spraying and after a big first flush, almost always with one or a few flowers.(scattered)
PS: no weak necks!

You're welcome...
And why not (it's a pleasure to) share experience on HMF, when others can profit from that?
As I did, when I was new on this site and used it (as well as books) to enhance my knowledge and expand my collection.

Agree with you, same with my own-root Lady of Shalott in partial shade.

Having this variety in our nursery for several years leads me to judge the fragrance to be a rather strong one.
