Sharifa Asma. Very fragrant rose, it is grafted and in first year.

Jude the Obscure, Reputed for being disease resistant. Lemon fragrance

Thank you our forum member Umar (DHA, Lahore) for gifting these beauties to me. Abraham darby is struggling with mites though.

Strange this double delight is always with yellow and not with white. Bush is sensitive to watering and leaves get yellow and burn too. I am still unable to find the fragrance it is famous for. Asma sharifa and fragrant plum are much more fragrant than DD.
Image

Let's compare it with my own root Cherry Perfait in its first year. No yellow in flower. Bush is very tough, no yellowing of leaves, drought tolerant, no leaves burn. Flower is consistent same size and bloom.

Another compact floribunda, own root, first year. Lost its tag by my son.
Image

Amaryllis Graffiti. I am not impressed with the flowers. Just okay. I would prefer apple blossom or pink nymph many times over it.

Strange you didn't like Graffiti, I thought you preferred exotic ones over normal.
I also don't.
