    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.

    • I bought a pint size of this plant this spring and it bloomed all summer and beyond. It currently has 3 roses on it and it's DECEMBER in New York! Amazing roses!

      Outstanding My favorite plant, I recommend to others all the time and explain the reasons why I like it so much.
    • Gorgeous color that doesn't fade like other yellow roses. Crown hardy in Zone 4, generally a very nice plant habit without stems getting too asymmetrical. Generally very healthy. The flowers shatter a little bit fast, but there typically are always some on this plant. It is an amazing improvement in yellow landscape shrub roses!!!!

      Above Average Superior performance, among my favorites, would recommend to others.
    • 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.
