    My first thought on seeing it was Asiatic as I always think they spread out falter than Orientals, no matter what type it is its a good looking flower

    I have Awakening (the double form of New Dawn rose) flowering on the garden arch - which I've just noticed is beginning to fall down. Oops, added to the list of jobs to do...
