The other two Austin roses I got this spring, 'Munstead Wood', and 'Snow Goose', did not do nearly so well.  They are perhaps a few inches larger than they were went they arrived.  I got exactly one flower from 'Munstead Wood'.  I got quite a few from 'Princess':

The puppy growth this year was impressive, too.
