My neighbor has this rose. Definitely not light yellow. Its a dark butter color. Not a chrome yellow, like most darker yellows. Its a different tone of yellow.

Mature size is average for its class. The blooms are above average size, and they sometimes have HT form.

I don't know if it is scented.

It does blackspot in her yard by July every year. I have watched it for years.

Vigor looks okay, but the stems looks kind of mean.

This rose does get attention from people. I like the blooms, but find the plant a bit disorderly.

I have Monkey Business and it hasn't grown above 6 inches tall which was the size when I bought it over 6 months ago, has BS, and has spindly growth. It hardly ever blooms. Right next to it is Honey Bouquet (which I purchased at the same time) which is about 3 1/2 ft. tall and is a bloom machine. Maybe MB doesn't like a very hot climate and this rose is for cooler climates? Don't know. I plan to SP it soon.

I think I am going to order this floribunda Monkey Business to plant Spring 2010. My only reservation is with it's pollen parent "Outrageous". For me, Outrageous was a total disaster of a rose with it's only redeeming quality a remarkably nice fragrance.
The pictures I have seen of MB look very nice. I like a floribunda with a high center form and I am always on the lookout for a good yellow rose regardless of the Modern Rose Class it comes from.
Keeping my fingers and toes crossed, LOL!!

MONKEY BUSINESS is now on Sale < less 20% >at SummerWinds Nursery for $11.99 in the Silicon Valley. I will try it, as yellow always adds llight to the garden and does bring out the other colors of roses so well.
