Gorgeous!How do you prune to achieve this wonderfully balanced shrub?

I'd guess they prune once a year, rather moderately, after the end of the flowering period.

Thank you for your quick reply!I have to admit pruning is still a challenge for me!As a beginner,I find the first few years are the easiest,one only has to let the roses be and they are beautiful;after those happy few years,though,I find some roses impossible to manage(prune,train,shape),so I'm naturally in awe of such amazing pruning skills!I will use this picture as reference for my own Asta if I ever plant one.

In my limited experience only Florence Ducher and Thor have shown proliferation,but definitely not on this scale,just the odd bud.

I had an 'Asta von Parpart' once where practically every bloom proliferated.

Every year?If so,it's a gamble to plant one.
