David Austin Roses for Cutting in the Bay Area
[NorCA 9] I just planned my first David Austin roses WS 2000, Carding Mills, Scepter'd Isle, Bishop's Castle this year and they are all pretty and photogenic. However, I'm looking for more cut flowers instead of just looking pretty in the garden. For instance, Scepter'd Isle is pretty in the garden but I don't think I will use it as cut flowers (small bloom and short vase life).
The thing with David Austin roses is they often very photogenic and it's hard to judge them from their photos. If you grow any David Austin roses for cutting, please let me know which ones work best for you and the photos of the whole bush will be wonderful.
I'm looking for David Austin rose (bush or climbing) that have continuous big blooms, long vase life and perform well in the south bay (Silicon Valley). My garden doesn't have black spot just powdery mildew but it's under control. Thank you for all the suggestions.
