Abraham Darby * David Austin Rose * Introduced in 1985

The Abraham Darby Rose has long arching canes and pink flowers with a touch of yellow in the center. The foliage has been a pale glossy green. There have been no disease problems and is by repute quite disease resistant. Abraham Darby has reliably re-bloomed.  I prune Abraham Darby as I would a climber and the rose has responded well by throwing out several new long canes each year.

The parents of Abraham Darby are 'Yellow Cushion' and 'Aloha'.
