My Julia Child is a blooming machine, she will bloom from March to November in zone 9. The buttery yellow blooms fade to white and the petals can be a chore to clean up. I have her planted in partial shade and she is quite happy there, she also does well in the heat of summer. She is somewhat disease resistant, I have to spray occasionally for BS. As a floribunda she doesn't produce blooms for the vase but rather blooms to enjoy in the garden or walkway, the fragrance is marvelous.

I'm torn with my feelings for this rose. On the positive side, the flowers are gorgeous, generous and long-lasting (they lasted on the plant for more than five days!). The fragrance is wonderful. On the negative side, this is one of the only two roses in my Zone 6a garden that got blackspot this fall, the other being floribunda rose Moondance. It didn't seem to weaken the plant, but even after spraying it couldn't seem to shake it.

We've had one of our rainiest summers on record in the Northeast this year. I'm hoping that next year if I start spraying early I can fend off the blackspot. Julia Child is a truly remarkable flower, and it's a pity that it seems more susceptible than the other roses.

Large blossomed, double petaled, stable yellow roses hardy to zone 5 are tough to come by. Rigorous spraying with Bayer kept mine clean this season but it seems also to hold some broad disease resistance of its own so I have been using it in my breeding program pretty heavily. If I were you I'd plant a few more bushes of it.

Thanks for the advice! I admit that I'm new to growing roses, but Julia Child is probably the most beautiful flower I've seen. I had been thinking that I should plant a few more. Even with the blackspot issues I've been having, you can't go wrong with a big, gorgeous flower that holds its petals for almost a week!

At the rose park of over 1,000 bushes - Singing-in-the-Rain floribunda beats Julia Child in non-stop, tons of bloom. The color is not washed out like Julia Child. Singing-in-the-Rain is in the Black-spot resistant list, with a refreshing musk scent.

Singing-in-the-rain is offered at Roses Unlimited as own-root. Tthe most disease-resistant yellow that doesn't fade is Honey Bouquet, surpasses Jullia Child in being compact, blooms don't fade, and great honey/musk scent. Honey Bouquet starts out as perfect HT exhibition form, then opens to ruffles with many petals in cool weather. Many people from different climates, including me, like Honey Bouquet.

Regan Nursery sell Singin' in the Rain as bare root. I have never understood the intense craze over Julia Childs for the rose only. But as a landscape bush in the right setting I can see how it would be great. But it will not be the yellow for my yard. I have heard so many that say Honey Bouquet is the one to get, and I may just end up with it.

Tom Carruth confirmed with me today that the rose listed in this lineage as 'Summerwine' by Warriner, is incorrect and instead should be listed as, ' Summer Wine' by Kordes.

Thanks, Robert
