This is one of the Austin roses that haven't been released on a large scale in England because they prefer warmer winters. The Endeavour is also one of the few Austin roses that don't have blooms in solid colors. It's a delicious blend of colors. It's comparable to Christopher Marlowe, but larger and more vigorous than Christopher Marlowe in my garden.
