Beyond expectations

I bought this in 2021-2022 although at the time I didn't have a spot for it ( it likes shade). I put it in a large pot while i made room for it. A few months ago i finally few months ago we took out a bush and placed Abby in itsnspot. When we took her out of the pot, there was áo much root growing inside, she used to give me tinny blooms. Fast forward to 3 months later she's bên quiet giving me show shopping roses in colors ò light oeach pink and gold about 4 inches large. Stunning!

Love this Rose Super Fragrant

Sorry to hear this is discontinued. I am glad though you have left pictures up for reference. I forget what I have sometimes and lost the tag on this beautiful rose. It is so fragrant and I am glad I bought it. Love Abraham Darby Big beautiful fragrant blooms

what more can be said about this perfect rose?

I said in another review that if I had to choose only one rose, it would be Bolero. But it might also be Abe Darby. This was the tiniest stemmed plant when it arrived in March 2022 and it has spit out a couple dozen gorgeous blooms, new basal growth, and it's constantly fragrant. Such a superb rose. No disease on mine either. I love Abe Darby! Such a bummer that it will be discontinued soon.

Outstanding Beautiful Rose

This will be a repeat of many other reviews, but it bears repeating. I planted this rose in a planter 4 weeks ago and it already has 9 blossoms. Incredibly beautiful. I've purchased 12 roses from Heirloom and most have been successful experiences. Two climbing roses, Jacob's Coat of Many Colors and Graham Thomas grew over 3 feet in 2 years with absolutely gorgeous blossoms. People think I have a green thumb, but I know Heirloom, their products and how-to-instructions are the reason my plants look so good. I wish I could have included the picture of Abraham Darby to show its beauty. Thank you, Heirloom, for making me look so good.
