Comments Sometimes its blossoms are pale pink, sometimes shell pink; but they are always large and packed with petals. As was true of several of David Austin's earlier English Roses, Johann Strauss can be a little shy with its blooms. Furthermore, those who want fragrance with their old style roses may not be wowed by the nose it gives: there is some sweet apple fragrance, but it is not always very strong. The plant can make a nice shrub, and it is resistant to disease. It would appear to be more reliably cold hardy than we might expect a rose with a high-centered blossom from Meilland to be, growing well in Akron, Ohio.
