I´m not sure if I have this rose, Janet, in my garden. I think it has been a mistake, because I wanted to buy another Austin rose and the label wasn´t right. The rose of your photo is very similar to my unknown rose.
Could you tell me about Janet?. Is it a vigorous and tall shrub? . Mine is in a big container. Everything you can tell me about it will be very helpful for me. Thank you.

Hi .. your pictures look a lot like my Janet. For me Janet does not have a very strong fragrance. My plant is fairly new (got it last year) but it's stayed pretty small, about 3 feet so far, it could get bigger - one never knows with Austins. I would not call it very vigorous. The blooms form singly or two, very heavy for the stem and tend to nod. Lasts a really long time on the plant. It really is hard to tell much more because as I said it's a fairly new rose for me too, only in it's second spring and just moved to the ground from a pot this spring. Hope this helps. I really like this rose very much.

Aprille: I'm trying to decide between Leander and William Morris and would love some input for my garden in Walnut Creek. Thanks!

Hi Lily,
Leander was new for me this year, and my plant did not do very well, so it's a bit difficult for me to comment on him. He did have lovely blooms though. William Morris on the other hand I've had for a few years and he's settled in very well. This plant has typical David Austin growth habits - leggy - you might want to put it at the back of the flower bed and give it some kind of support, like a pyramid trellis or something similar. it's a good bloomer with a lovely fragrance. Very nasty thorns though. I don't spray and he has stayed pretty clean. Our biggest problems here are black spot and powdery mildew, but he does not get any.
