bought a David Austin rose...Olivia Austin ...earlier this year. Advertised as "best ever" and with strong scent.
I'm not really a rose fan but this rose was purchased as a memorial to my mother.
It looks good...healthy ....never sprayed ......with several blooms but it has no scent whatsoever.
I contacted David Austin and posted a picture and they confirmed it is Olivia Austin adding that the scent will come with later blooms. Since I don't really grow roses, does this make sense to those of you who do? Anyone growing Olivia Austin?
Without scent this rose does not fulfill its advertised criteria so not really wanted.
