Abraham Darby Rose Flower

Posted on Updated on


Abraham Darby Rose Flower

‘Abraham Darby’ bears large, deeply cupped blooms in shades of pink, apricot and yellow and, in spite of their size, they continue to be produced for the remainder of the season.

They have a rich, fruity fragrance with a refreshing sharpness. ‘Abraham Darby’ is an excellent, vigorous, medium-sized shrub. It has a bushy, arching habit and large, polished, rather modern leaves; flower, growth and leaf are all in proportion and never clumsy. Named to celebrate the inventor Abraham Darby, who, with his son and grandson, played an important part in the industrial revolution.

        I know that–it’s always a day-brightener to see your gravatar. My point was that I didn’t know if you were following my blog yet when my rose picture appeared in a post 2 years ago.
