Munstead Wood/Lady Shallot/Lady Emma Hamilton/orPrincess Anne
I am debating between these 4 rose for next year. I have read really good things about 3 of them, and Princess Anne just looks very different from most Austins.
Munstead Wood-I have read great things about, but I already have Ebb Tide, Falstaff, and Twilight zone which bloom their heads off for me so not certain this color would add much....
Lady of Shallot--Intrigues me a lot, closest color I have to it would be Easy Living which makes a much smaller bloom.
Lady Emma-Also intrigued, but I have two Lady Hillingdons-a bush and a climber so again afraid of color similarities.
Princess Anne-Like colors, but haven't seen much about how good she does, other than having a lack of scent.
The other concern I seem to have about all 4 of these is they seem to top out at 3-4 ft. Most of my roses are much larger than this. I am looking to add something to the garden that contributes something new, but will definitely not disregard an exemplary rose just because of repetitiveness. So if there is another Austin ya'll would reccomend by all means let me know. I live near Galveston Texas on the Upper Gulf Coast.
If it would assist, here are my current roses:
2 Graham Thomas
1 Scepter D'Isle
2 Belinda's Dreams
In the Mood
Lady Hillingdon Cl
Nacodoches Rose(Sorry Texas A&M I refuse to call it Grandma's Yellow)
Yellow Lady Banks
