Teasing Georgia (AUSbaker/'P/27/88') climber rose bred in the UK 1987. This rose is just amazing in my garden. The yellow, apricot shading, light yellow edges multi-petal 3.25" blooms are gorgeous with moderate fragrance, and it's very healthy and blooms non stop in my garden. It is a must have rose for any garden.













Strawberry Hill (Ausrimini) climbing rose bred in 2001 and introduced in 2006 in the UK . Quick repeat, very healthy, beautiful 3.5” blooms and nice fragrance. It‘s the best performer in my garden. Helen

    Thanks for sharing Helen. Everything looks perfect in your garden! I am curious what roses don’t perform well in your garden then I know for sure it won’t grow in my garden:).

    i see no signs of spent bloom on Strawberry Hill. Does this mean its flowers last well and don’t shatter easily like many Austins?

    They are both glorious, but strawberry hill really takes my breath away. I love everything about it. I hope mine performs half as good as yours one day.

    Perfect pics again, Helen!! What a beautiful garden you must have! I’m getting strawberry hill next spring after having sniffed one the other day. Such lovely smells!


    i do already have Teasing Georgia, and I love her too for her abundant blooms and vigorous growth. However she does BS for me (not terrible, but still some). Does yours have that as well?

    How many perfect roses do you have Helen ? I think it must be that you are the perfect gardener and any rose is very fortunate to find a home in your garden.

    Thank you @Minshen (8b/9a Victoria BC) , @Chris Martins Zone6a Chicago , @dianela7bnorthal , @Sheila z8a Rogue Valley OR , @sbrklyn_7bny .

    @sbrklyn_7bny There are many roses don't perform well in my garden but I collect unique beautiful roses, so I'm happy to have them in my garden, ex: powdery mildew (Tijana, Osiria...), rust (Abraham Darby, William Morris...) Teasing Georgia has good vase life for an Austin. If you want even longer vase life, you can try Evelyn.

    @Sheila z8a Rogue Valley OR How is your garden in summer? What's the average temperature there?

    @dianela7bnorthal I think Strawberry will perform as well as Raspberry Cream Twirl in your garden.

    @Minshen (8b/9a Victoria BC) Agree, Strawberry Hill fragrance is lovely. We often don't have black spot in California so I'm not sure about Teasing Georgia's black spot resistance. You can check with other gardeners who live in black spot areas. Helen

    Helen, we have had 2-3 weeks of 100 F during each of the the 5 Summers I've been here so far. That is days added up to 14-21 days. They aren't all contiguous. We have dry heat. Rainfall totals for a year are an average of 18.35 inches of rain, most in Winter.

    I think some roses and plants shut down, but many seem to carry on just fine. The DAs want water. The Tea roses seem really healthy. I guess it is a mediterranean climate. Of course I have drip watering. I can grow lilacs and OGRs and Teas and chinas here so that is really fun. Your garden is gorgeous. When I go to Portland or SF, it is greener there in the Summer than it is here.

    @Sheila z8a Rogue Valley OR The weather in my area is more mild. If we have a 100 F some days, it's just one or two days, then it cools down after that. Helen

    Beautiful indeed. They are gorgeous. I can attest that Teasing Georgia does really well in my garden as well and I live in a cold zone.
