Fully double, magnificently formed blooms with outer petals of pale gold that deepen toward the center. This strongly scented mini-flora is a winner all the way around! Glossy, deep green foliage covers this upright plant, providing a rich contrast with the glowing flowers. Bloom is abundant throughout the season, making Double Gold ™ an exceptional landscape or container plant.
