Lots of hype about the roses being SO fragrant, blah, blah, blah. I've found that they are NOT and that they also don't do as well as they advertise. I contacted Customer Service about which specific roses would do well in my area - well... not so much. And the fragrance? What fragrance? Roses are supposed to smell great - until we started screwing around with Mother Nature and bred the fragrance right out of them. David Austin roses are no different. No smell. And despite their insistance to the contrary, they do NOT do well in south Texas.
