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

Did not want to like this one, not enthused by it....tend to dislike globular shapes and do not like cluster flowers with such shapes for sure but the landscaping demanded something to that effect and Julia Child filled the space. Now, the downsides: the color FADES and fades BADLY. Dead-heading is a chore. But the upsides? Basically needs no spray. This year in Columbus, OH 6a we had a hot (yes HOT) wet spring followed by an extremely hot and extremely dry summer...........most of my roses grow in pots but Julia is one of the few in the the ground in a raised bed = SPRINKLERS which = BLACKSPOT............well, not for Julia. This one chugged on through, healthy as can be not only this year but in the 3 years is a landscape rose, one that the individual bloom isn't notable, need more than one, enjoy from afar, in a subtext............if the color---very warm at opening and fading white-spotty and badly---if that fits your garden plan, absolute highest yellow rose before Julia Child and specifically THIS YEAR has ever turned my gaze away from Sunsprite....but I will admit, they share the raised bed and Sunsprite fell to disease with the needed and incessant sprinklers running.....Julia did not................

I saw Julia Child at the rose park, zone 5a. It's a LARGE BUSH, irregular shape. The scent is VERY spicy, and may not be to everyone's liking. My kid thinks it smells like cough medicine. Julia Child's flowers fade to white, and doesn't stay yellow. Midas Touch has a deeper yellow color, compact & hardy in zone 5a. Honey Bouquet is more compact, better scent & yellow that doesn't fade.
