Comments Abraham Darby, once established, grows vigorously into a shrub that can easily exceed six or seven feet in every direction. The flowers are a pale apricot that fades quickly to pale pink. They are deeply cupped and fragrant. It reliably produces two good flushes of bloom in a season. The plant is resistant to blackspot and mildew.
