I bought this one as a band from Heirloom. It tried to die, and I took it into the house and had it under lights and the cooler air. It gradually recovered.

I planted it in the fall, and it hasn't looked back. It has bloomed well, and is growing at a tremendous rate.

Today, I decided to take a pi of a few of its blooms:

He sure is a beauty! Thanks for posting.

My bush just went completely out of bloom & I'll miss that wonderful unique fragrance.

Watching for buds here!

I've had mine for a few years and this is the first year it's really pushed out the blooms and they are incredible. Mine is also done for the moment, and I can't wait for the next flush.

Your rose is gorgeous. This is one of my very favorite Austins but unfortunately it didn't like my hot, dry weather. It obviously likes yours just fine!

Thanks so much for looking and commenting on my pic. ...Abe likes it so far, Ingrid, but he may not be so happy when full summer comes...it won't be dry, but it will be hot. He is growing so much and he has been blooming so nicely, I love it.

Abe's a winner despite the BS. one of the few susceptible to disease I'll make a serious attempt to keep healthy.

He's definitely gorgeous, Kay. So glad your extra effort got him through his rough period.
