This rose well illustrates the effect environment can have, as well as the vagaries of the observer. Peter Beales of England observes that 'Duke of Edinburgh' is "shortish in stature and slightly spreading in habit." By way of contrast, Trevor Griffiths of New Zealand, admires it as "an upright tall, attractive plant." Here in Texas, we have observed the plant to be moderate in growth, sturdy in habit, and lovely in bloom. We should add that all agree that this rose is extremely fragrant.
