Pat Austin

This is the English shrub rose Pat Austin, newly planted in 1998.   It is a remarkable orange-apricot color, which tends to fade as it opens.  It is quite fragrant, bearing a variant of the tea rose fragrance.  It has bloomed pretty continuously this, its first season.  Here's a shot of the first blossom of 1999.

As is typical of all of my David Austin English roses, Pat Austin blooms in spurts throughout the season.  Here's an example of a late July blossom.

It's now early August; the summer has been cool and very wet and the roses haven't appreciated it.  Some, however, are once again in bloom.

2004 Pat Austin

The very severe winter of 2004-2005 did a number on many of the roses including Pat Austin.  Much of last year's wood had to be pruned away but she has recovered nicely.  It's now early June 2005 and she has begun to bloom.

On the evening of Memorial Day eve, we had a violent thunderstorm.  On Memorial Day I found that Pat Austin had all of her canes bent over to the ground due to the weight of so many waterlogged blossoms.  I staked her and tied her and she seems to once again be happy.
