If indeed a climber, a very lethargic one. It also blooms often and regularly all season long, unlike many large-flowered climbers. I myself regard it as sort of a rangy bush, so far.

Vintage, MR123 and you all say it is restrained. I've changed the class to a shrub, instead of a climbing HT.

Not in the references, but here is its entry in the Vintage Garden Book of Roses: "Lundy's Lane Yellow", HT, rrr/fff/3, unknown, found [Lowery, found]. "An old Pernetiana of golden-salmon to clear yellow to straw, small but full and well-formed. Apple-green foliage abundantly covers this shapely shrub."

Thank you Deborah. Added. I have also added the tiny clues you give with your photographs. Well done! Vintage said "apple green" foliage, but the photos look 'Peace'-ish deep green to me and so I have added "deep green" foliage.

Yes, I've always wondered about that "apple-green" description for the leaves -- always dark green here.

Thank you, hopefully they will take ownership of their new listing and provide more detail as well as a complete rose list.

Now, that dark a color I have yet to see here, especially this time of the year and in cooler temperatures, when blooms trend toward the pale side. What I have observed is that the petal color is photo- or temperature-?reactive, along the lines of Mme. Berkeley, such that summer brings a darker pink "wash" over the petals, but, even so, I don't recall any as dark as in this photo. Remarkable!
