It is an excellent rose for the garden, and it makes a great cutting rose. It has very disease resistant foliage, long cutting stems,and blooms that keep their color well.
There is not a lot of fragrance on this beauty, but it is still a worthwhile yellow rose in the vase. Pare the bright blooms with some Lavender and Baby's Breath, and you'll have a sweet Summer bouquet.

flower, and have a pleasing variation of yellows on each rose flower, with visable golden stamens on the fully open bloom.
