I like Lilian Austin's floral myrrh scent better than Abraham Darby's fruity scent. The scent is there when the weather is cool, but gone when it's hot. It's big at the rose park (4' x 5') grafted on Dr. Huey, hardy but with sharp prickles. It shatters as a cut flower, not recommended with prickly stem up to the bloom. My own-root is tiny at the end of second year, only 1' x 1.5'.

My LA was just not flourishing where it was -probably had too little sun and was planted too close to a large Abraham Darby. I was planning on shovel pruning it to the green waste bucket so I cut all its' scraggly canes to the stump (this is an own-root rose) and dug a trench around the root ball. I was planning on digging it up in a week when I had more time, but when I came back to it about 4 weeks later it had all sorts of new growth on it! I transplanted it to a full sun area about a month ago and it has already had 4 blooms and lots of healthy new foliage. Don't give up on this beauty, it will survive a change of venue!

Hi. I've done the same thing more than once. I'm generally a light pruner, but some roses perform much better if they are pruned hard. This is how we learn these little secrets.
