Comments It is reputed to be suscptible to all three major fungal diseases; but some sources claim its just a minor problem. Similarly, it lacks the vigor found in a number of the better David Austin roses. It is leggy, so it needs training in the garden - either pegging or self-pegging will work. When everything works, the plant produces very fragrant, deeply cupped candy pink roses occasionally through the summer.
