'Abraham Darby' is one of the most splendid of all David Austin Roses. Its very large cup-shaped flowers are apricot and yellow at first, becoming tinted with pink over time. The bush is well-rounded with vigorous, healthy growth and hardiness. It grows to 5 ft tall by 5 ft wide or 8 ft as a climber. Its fruity fragrance is strong and rich with a refreshing sharpness. It is an excellent repeat-bloomer. (David Austin 1985, Auscot).
