The Broadway Rose, is a very beautiful, and extremely fragrant Hybrid Tea Rose. The blooms are a delicious color reminiscent of a sunset! The bright bold colors of yellow/gold are edged in pink/red, and get more brilliant with age. I imagine it gets it's brilliant colors from a parent "Sutters Gold" The Broadway rose tends to have a problem with constant, hot sun, so a spot that will offer a bit of shade is more desirable for it.
This lovely, unique colored Hybrid Tea rose has a "better than average" winter hardiness rating, but it will need protection in colder spots.

beautiful bouquets. And the perfume on this one is extravagant. If you have a preference for fragrant roses, you'll love these! The scent is strong; Damask/Spice.
Since the bush grows large, you'll get plenty of flowers to cut.
The bush is also disease resistant to those pesky rose diseases... another plus!
You should prune this rose bush in early Spring. It blooms on new wood, so early pruning will promote new growth, which leads to more blooms! The blooms repeat late Spring/Early Summer.
