Where can you Buy this rose?
In hot climates, the flowers will keep their color better if the bush is planted in a slightly shaded spot. This rose makes a most attractive bush, with a compact, bushy growth, making it ideal for the front of a border, or mixed bed.
These rose bushes are simply stunning, when planted in a row in a formal garden! The flowers repeat well, and continue to bloom throughout the Summer.
The upward facing blooms can have as many as 100 petals. The blooms can be single, but usually appear in clusters of up to 5. You should prune lightly between flowering, to encourage the bush to produce more blooms. The foliage on these English Roses, is mid-green in color, and disease resistant. (Sometimes mildew and black-spot are a problem)
These soft, sweet, yellow colored roses were dedicated to David Austin’s granddaughter, who was born after the rose was released.
