Claire Austin is a beautiful, arching bush with gorgeous, very full, globular, cupped, 3.5”, gentle lemon to nearly white blooms with 41+ petals. She is a repeat bloomer with an intense, myrrh fragrance. Expect several flushes through the growing season of stunning blooms and intoxicating scent. Claire Austin loves to climb so give her a trellis, arch, wall, or obelisk and watch her grow up to 12 ft tall. She can handle partial shade, and we recommend her for zones 5-11.

Strong Plant

She arrived & we acclimated her to our weather for a few days on the deck before planting. Then we had a massive heat wave. She looked like she was struggling, so we shaded her a bit & kept her hydrated. She came through wonderfully! No blooms quite yet—we just wanted her to survive the heat after planting! We ordered two more. Can’t wait to see how she grows & blooms!

A delightful creamy-white slow climber

My Claire Austin has been through it. I revamped my garden summer '23 in an overly hot July (Zone 7a) and all of my roses had to get moved. SInce Claire can handle a little shade, I thought I'd move her to a part-shade area where she could climb, but she started to struggle. She de-foliated and starting turning brown. In a panic, I dug her out of that spot and made another - final - home for her in a full-sun area and prayed she would make it. I gave her a severe haircut and waited. I swear by HR Founders Fish Fertilizer and soil amendments, making sure she and her new home were well attended. By now it was August. Slowly she started to come back to life and now, almost a year later, she is thriving in a 7 foot tall obelisk getting taller and fuller every day. I love her creamy-white flowers and healthy foliage. Her scent is not as strong, but she makes up for it in beauty. Thank you, HR, for giving us the tools to make our roses thrive!

Five Buds in Two Days!

The rose bush arrived last week and we planted it over weekend with lots of comoost in the hole and surrounding the plant. When it arrived it looked healthy, but there were no buds on the plant. They might be a little hard to see, but after TWO DAYS THERE ARE FIVE BUDS and the rose is growing vigorously! I'm so excited to have Clair Austin roses growing up a trellis as one of the focal point in my garden! If it keeps going as it started it is going to be a spectacular addition to our garden! I'll keep posting on progress.

Beautiful but fade

She grows very fast and seems healthy. I was able to attach to a trellis in one growing season. The blooms are absolutely beautiful but shatter so quickly. They last maybe 3 days on average which is quite disappointing. They last the same on the plant as they do if you take a cutting inside. It does seem to have more buds and blooms more though to make up for these short lived flowers.

Amazing growth

I just received two bare-rooted Claire Austins two weeks ago and I am amazed at the healthy and vigorous growth the plants have produced in such a short time. New growth from every branch. Maybe it won't bloom this year, but next year it should be incredibly lush and floriferous.
