Abraham Darby

Fragrant & Remontant
Low Roses | Bushes | Shrubs | Climbers
Photo of Rose Abraham Darby Abraham Darby's blossoms can be dark, almost apricot in color, or they can be almost pure candy pink, but they are always fragrant. The plant is rarely covered in blossoms, but the flowers it does produce can be three to four inches across and packed with petals.

It is moderately disease resistant, and a steady grower. Bred from the climber Aloha, it tends to make a fairly open shrub. Train on a pillar or cover its feet in small-flowered plants. Rated a solid 7.5 by ARS members, it is a strong candidate for any garden that features old style roses.
