The Oregold Rose, bears yellow, cabbage-like Hybrid Tea Roses. The very beautiful large-flowered roses begin a pale golden yellow, and then fade to buff.
This is a rose that does best in a cooler climate, where the color of the flower will be much brighter/richer, and the flowers will be larger. The blooms also hold up better in cooler weather, and will sometimes last for weeks on the bush. The blooms open too quickly, and tend to fade in warmer weather.
These large flowered Hybrid Tea Roses originated in Germany, where it was named after the great soprano 'Anneliese Rothenberger'(b.1962)
Hybrid Tea roses are the most popular rose on the market today.
