This David Austin Rose is a delight, it has long arching stems and benefits from support, but has been in bloom in my garden, non-stop, since early June. It is not only an eye catching bush but is also beautifully scented.

Noted by Antique Rose Emporium:
Fat buds open to cupped, medium blooms of a radiant golden yellow. The fragrance is unusual and spicy. Rather upright, many gardeners are at a loss as to how to control this rose. We have heard numerous remedies of either pruning back hard, pegging or training as a small climber. Either way, it looks magnificent in the garden. The rose was named for the British Old Rose expert, Graham Stuart Thomas."
