St Patrick (WEKamanda) [HT] Winner 1996 AARS Award. Breeder Week's Roses from USA. 'St. Patrick' charmed the snakes from Ireland and the green overtones in this supersiow queen opening yellow rose gives it a touch of the Emerald Isle! A yellow rose which performs (without fading) in the heat! We've trialled it in Narromine so we know its one of the very few yellows which do! The characteristic green overtones are most evident in heat and its grey-green foliage compliments the perfect buds and bloom.
