    and if so, are you pleased with it?

    I came across this rose for the first time yesterday - they have a whole bed of it growing in the rose garden within Queen Mary's Gardens in Regent's Park. Incidentally, that was looking lovely despite the heat - well worth a visit: Queen Mary's Gardens

    Elegantly shaped, very striking cream flowers edged with cherry red, and a decent fragrance. It looked like a good sturdy grower too. I was thinking I would like to find a spot for one here this autumn - so was wondering if anyone on here grew it, and if so what their experience of it had been.

    I didn't take any photos yesterday but here's a link which includes one: Nostalgia

    Many thanks in advance for your help

      Hello @Clare G my friend yes I have spent many happy and contented hours there, its a truly wonderful place but haven't been for about 8 years,are the Delphinium borders still there,I have grown "Nostalgia" and found it to be an excellent Rose
      I have a similar Rose which is "Double Delight" and I live next door to a large Rose nursery/farm/ Rose Plants, Rose Bushes, Bare Root Roses for Sale online

        Excellent! Thank you very much @wiseowl! Double Delight looks like a beauty as well.

        Yes, they still have the delphiniums at Regent's Park - those were looking splendid yesterday too.
