Rose enquiry

Has anybody ever grown the David Austin rose 'Molineux'?  If so what are your thoughts? Does it end up a very large shrub?  Would appreciate a few pictures if possible.  Many thanks.

    I have Molineux... it has a nice tea scent but I find the repeat a bit slow, and it does get some blackspot where I am..
    ..on the plus side, it was very quick to grow and attain 3 feet, but it has not got any larger so far.. I've only had it 2 seasons.. I do enjoy the bloom forms and colours, which are quite changeable..

    ..I think there are better yellows..

    Hi @Hilary_15   Molineux is not my favourite, in fact I have now dug it out.  It didn't have a  very good perfume in my garden and the yellow was a bit too bright for me.  I prefer a gold or apricot shade.

    Ok, thanks for that.  May choose another one instead.
