I know that rose scent can sometimes be elusive, apparently depending on weather, time of day etc... however this season I have planted one Charles Darwin, and also Charlotte... and it does not seem to matter time, weather, or how I hold my mouth, I never get a scent from these two... they are both yellows, yet I know it can't be just the colour, because Sunsprite by Kordes is one of the most beautifully scented roses I've had... My Austin Eglantyne is scented even in the beginning of a bud opening, no matter what the weather or time, also another new one, Princess Alexandra of Kent seems also frangrant any time.... Any hints? Anybody? I am seriously beginning to think of moving away from the Austins, each of the above tags said "highly fragrant" and I'm starting to feel that they are not being as truthful as they might have been.... If I'm not going to have scent then I would prefer to move to the wonderfully strong and carefree Kordes...
