DA 'The Nun' and similar roses

10 years ago

I was looking for a while at David Austin's "The Nun" rose and a bit in doubt if I want it or not. What I like about it is the globular bloom form with the stamens visible, but not fully open. Then again, I haven't seen it in person, so I fear that in reality it may be much plainer than it is in the pictures and I will end up with the generic white flat bloom rose.

So my question would be, if anyone grows/grown The Nun, is she staying a bit globular, or flattens when open. Also, I was wondering if there are similar globular roses with the stamens visible but retaining the globular shape and not flattening out.
