David Austin is considered to be one of the best rosarians in the world. His roses combine intense fragrance of old roses with the continuous blooms of newer hybrids. Sizes vary but they usually grow fuller than hybrid teas or floribundas. The result is that the roses have the beauty of antique roses but more color choices. Except for the Susan Williams-Ellis rose, these English roses can be grown in Zone 9, with full sun, moderate watering. I have had great results using a systemic three-one fertilizer, pesticide, and disease control, like Bayer's All-in-One.
Make sure that your roses are either widely spaced away from each other or that your rose garden bed utilizes micro-irrigation. Overhead watering and rain can create more opportunity for disease issues, like black spot on roses.
