Talking about Rose (Rosa 'Geoff Hamilton'), kniphofia wrote:

Introduced by David Austin in 1997, Geoff Hamilton has clusters of globular pink blooms borne in clusters. It has a strong fragrance and blooms in flushes throughout the season. Geoff Hamilton was a much loved presenter of the BBC programme Gardener's World in the 1980s which was broadcast from his garden at Barnsdale in the East Midlands in the UK. Geoff was an early advocate of organic gardening. He died in 1996.

Talking about Rose (Rosa 'Shadow Dancer'), Dewberry wrote:

This rose is impressive:

I had one in Lubbock, TX, where it's very difficult and often impossible to grow things because of the salty, alkaline, heavy clay soil; hot dry climate (in bad years many days are hotter than 110 degrees and the annual rainfall may be at desert levels.); extreme winds; dust storms; occasional bad hail; and surprisingly cold winters.

Our Shadow Dancer rose bloomed profusely all season long. It grew up an A-frame porch swing in the yard, neatly covering one leg of the frame and the top of the frame with masses of big ruffled red and pink blooms, which have a strong raspberry scent. The foliage was also nice and healthy.

Really, this rose could rightly be the most popular climbing rose in the world. But instead it is almost impossible to find. I'd dearly like to persuade growers and retailers to give us Shadow Dancer. It was introduced just more than 20 years ago, so I guess it's out of patent and they wouldn't have to pay for a patent license. Why on earth don't they add this jewel?

Talking about Rose (Rosa 'Ambridge Rose'), kniphofia wrote:

Bred in 1986 by David Austin, The Ambridge Rose is a beautiful repeat-blooming, small-size shrub rose, 2 to 3 feet high. The flowers are a warm apricot blend with a pleasing myrrh fragrance, produced in loose clusters. Named after the village featured in the long-running BBC radio series The Archers. I grew this myself in my Yorkshire garden and can attest to its charm.

Talking about Rose (Rosa 'Morning Mist'), kniphofia wrote:

Introduced by David Austin in 1996 this is a shrub rose reaching 6 feet, bearing large copper-pink single flowers with a prominent boss of stamens held on red anthers. A most unusual colour, the flowers later form large orange hips. It has a light musk fragrance and has a long blooming season. Attractive to insects due to it's single form. One of my all time favourite roses.

Talking about Rose (Rosa 'Pink Knock Out'), ILPARW wrote:

I have never really liked roses, except to buy a bouquet at a florist. My mother had me plant and care for several grafted tea roses on the east side of the old house back in the 1960's & 70's. I always have gotten pricked and/or scratched when working with hybridized cultivar roses. This line of new Knock Out cultivars has been planted around a lot the last two decades and I had to prune and work with these shrub roses for some customers when I was working with a small garden-landscape company from 2002 to 2018. No matter what I wear, I get bitten by these. This line of shrub roses does not need to be fertilized and sprayed. I don't remember any of these having a good strong scent. Deer can nibble on them a little or a lot. A new viral disease spread by some mites called Rose Rosette Disease is killing off lots of these and other cultivated roses. This new disease must be native to eastern North America, as it does not really harm the native species of roses as: Virginia Rose, Illinois Rose, Carolina Rose, Swamp Rose, etc.
