This rose is at its best now. It puts up these great arching sprays of flowers. The peachy-pink flowers show their best colours now, they quickly begin to fade in the summer but the gentle autumn sun is kinder to them.

This year has been a very trying time to be a rose in the south-west of England. We had -3 and -4 frosts on 27-28th of April then a blistering 32 degrees in June. The weather subsequently turned changable and cool with some amount of rain almost every day, three days ago it was almost cold enough for a frost. Most repeat roses had a disasterous secound flush of flowers. However, 'Cornelia' is just coming into flower for the third time seemingly undaunted by the challenging weather. In the autumn it will have a grand finale with bigger sprays of flowers and a far greater depth of colour that the summer sun would have bleached out. I would definately recommend this rose for areas with cool wet summers.

Thank you !! I'm putting Cornelia back on my buy-list, some prickles are acceptable if it's cold-hardy & fragrant. Hopefully its scent will waft in my humid summer.

Thanks for the update! Your growing season weather fluctuations resemble a rather normal season here in the mountains of Arizona. I just moved Cornelia from a pot to a (hopefully) permanent spot in the garden...

I hope 'Cornelia' grows well for you, it is a very rewarding rose. Make sure it gets plenty of water in September, if the weather's dry, and it will present you with some wonderful displays of autumn flowers, it's when this rose is at its best.
