My two bob's worth - St Patrick is brilliant. Flowers last and last if you cut them. Tends to repeat fairly well, is strong and robust and doesn't appear to suffer from any drawbacks. The yellow is such a pure, clear colour that no other (apart from Limelight which I haven't seen in the flesh) yellow has.

Brass Band has been a joy for the six years or so that I have had it. It blooms profusely, has a lovely perfume and is trouble free. It seems to cope fairly well with heat, which is a key criterion here on the edge of the outback. My only grumble is that it's hard to deadhead because it is a floribunda. (And I've always found them difficult to deadhead sensibly, if they're not the ones that conveniently send out new shoots quickly).

Kronenberg is just sensational. It produces the most stunning coloured flowers in my whole collection. Until it fades, it's a show stopper. It has the vigorous growth characteristic of the Peace family, repeats a little slower than I would like ideally, but well worth its place in a rose garden if the colour appeals.
