Highly Recommened!! Here in Coastal Georgia heat & humidity...sprayed only once this May, Molineux has not shown ANY sign of disease & seems immune to BS. Moderately vigorous, attractive bushy plant, strong stems, blooms lt. butter-yellow in heat;dk, apricot/yellow when cooler, in clusters & very quick to repeat but blow in 1 to 2 days. Leafed-out to the ground and less than 3ft---thanks to Bambi (my rose problem is deer). I highly recommend this rose for the superior disease resistance....just as healthy and care-free as Knock-Outs in my garden. All of my Austin Roses have pretty much stayed disease-free without spray since May....just a BS leaf here and there if any.

This has been a very successful Austin rose in my garden. The plant has no disease problems at all -- seems to be immune to the blackspot that plagues other Austin yellows. It also repeats at an alarming rate. No sooner is the first flush complete, then the next one is half-way developed and the plant back in bloom in two weeks. The flowers are a lovely bright yellow, with beautiful apricot-orange center petaloids in cool weather. There are only two minor defects -- the fragrance is rather weak and the flowers shatter quickly when cut. But this is being picky. It is an excellent rose of great charm, the best of the Austin yellows and to be highly recommended.

I was so pleased with Molineux, I managed to convince my mother to plant it in her garden. She lives only 20 or so miles away, but a world apart in terms of summer weather. Often when it's 65 degrees F here in San Francisco, it's 95 in San Anselmo. Her humidity is much lower and she doesn't have all the wet foggy days I do.

Well, Molineux has been a misery for her. The plant looks weaker and the flowers open for her a dirty white color when the weather is hot and never achieve much size. They look like some rather pathetic polyantha, not a lovely English rose.

I still love my Molineux -- it is a healthy bloom machine and it's flowers stuffed with true yellow petals. But beware if you live in hot and dry summer weather!

In Zone 8b, great disease resistance and it is recurrent blooming. I see the description says 2 feet, but my first year plants have surpassed 3 feet, already.

My first year is well over 3 feet - and continues to bloom constantly - no disease - live in Orange County.
