Arthur Bell Rose

Floribunda Roses

The Arthur Bell rose, are hardy, very lovely, yellow Floribunda roses, that flower early and repeat quickly.

The beautiful flowers on this yellow rose bush are very fragrant. The flowers begin a wonderful, deep yellow, but quickly fade to primrose, lemon, and cream color.

The color change is more notable in hot sunny weather. Some gardeners find the contrast of the fading colors quite charming, while others consider it a major fault. Still, all agree that Arthur Bell is certainly one of the easiest roses to grow.

The bright yellow pointed buds  on the Arthur Bell rose, transform to pretty cups that are much paler in color. The petals are firm, and the flowers stand up well even in the rain.
