Does anyone have experience growing The Poet's Wife, a yellow David Austin rose described as having a lemon fragrance? I am especially interested in knowing about its disease resistance and fragrance.

I've had mine for only about 6 months, so I can't tell you anything about its disease resistance. It put out a few pretty blooms in fall, but the rose bush is between a couple of thorny monsters, so my nose never got close enough to judge the fragrance.

It's on my DA order for this season. I hope to be able to report back in four or five years.
