These yellow Hybrid tea rose bushes are great for all landscape situations. They make nice bedding roses, and will add a great splash of color to the garden. You should plant them in groups of three for an eye-catching display.
The vigorous bush grows upright, and is well branched. The dark green leaves are a nice contrast to the very bright colored flowers.
The blooms are slightly wavy, and usually borne singly, but sometimes they appear in small clusters.
The non-fading flowers stand up well in the rain. They also tolerate the heat well. You'll find the bush a bit prickly (thorny), but it grows fast, is quite bushy, and repeats flowers quickly.
The Midas Touch rose is considered easy to grow in all climates.
Gardeners agree that the best flowers are produced in cooler weather, and glow like beacons in the garden.
