One of the spectacular roses at the Santa Fe Botanical Garden at Museum Hill is the ‘Pat Austin’ rose. It is a medium sized shrub rose which can be a short climber. Its arching glossy foliage with nodding blooms gives it a graceful look. It is hardy to grow and has excellent repeat blooming (remontant) qualities. The strong seductive tea scent makes ‘Pat Austin’ very pleasant to be around.
