Rosa 'Cream Abundance'

In 2012 I re-created the North facing front garden, got rid of a very old privet hedge, dug a completely new bed beside my new low wall and railings and have planted things that I hope will manage with light but very little direct sunlight. This rose is one of three planted that can cope with shade - I hope. They are tall standards ie grafted at 100cms so they will flower above the railings. One was R. 'Champagne Moment'  and I planted two R. 'Cream Abundance' either side of it because supposedly it has smaller, cream, cluster flowers and is sweetly scented and repeats, with good disease resistance.

However, as you can see, the flowers are enormous and red/pink on the outside and cream in the middle. They are also fragrant as promised. They have not been "what they said on the tin" but I am not complaining. They look and smell fabulous and are already repeating. Very impressive for roses in year one and much appreciated by my neighbours and those walking past.
