[In 1959, the author wrote:] Golden Wings is a single rose, with five pale-yellow petals and orange stamens -- a charming, airy blossom on a vigorous bush; if left ot itself, it will grow to six feet, but it may be kept to average height by judicious pruning. It blooms from early spring until the snow flies and is winter-hardy to the tips.
