Still think yellow roses are tough to grow? Not this rebel!
We evaluated yellow roses for years, looking for one that lived up to our demands for brilliant color and excellent disease-resistance. This is it! Sunny, canary yellow flowers do not fade to white, and really light up against the glossy green foliage. It is free-flowering, producing lots of buds which open to self-cleaning flowers. Superior disease-resistance makes it easy for gardeners to enjoy. Winner of an Award of Excellence from the American Rose Society.Continuous Bloom or RebloomerLong Blooming

Not only is this rose the color of a lemon, its fragrance is the beautiful , delicate smell of lemon zest. You failed to mention this in your description. Maintenance of this rose is comparable to the knock out variety.Jim McCartyArkansasUnited States5 years ago
