A lot prettier than expected, and vigor is quite nice. Will see about the black spot people say it gets this summer. So far, it has been clean.

Kind of a soft butter yellow with a dusty pink edging that makes the petals appear to be tipped in orange-ish as it blends into the yellow background. A very "spring tone" coloration.

Morden Sunrise is one of my favorite hardy shrubs. It has such a beautiful, simple blossom; Sunrise was a very apt name. There are a few issues that you should know before you chose this cultivar:

1) In the twin cities area of MN we have a species of blackspot that defoliates Morden Sunrise before any of my other roses. In fact, it acts as an early indicator plant for the garden. Depending on your area of the country, you may have to spray diligently to keep any of the beautiful dark green foliage after July.

2) Though Morden Sunrise is definitely crown hardy in zone 4, in 3 winters not a single cane survived the winter; however this cultivar is very vigorous and threw surprisingly thick canes and was in bloom with the rest of the garden, so don't panic in the spring if you have to prune to the ground.

I am in zone 4b/5a and my Morden sunrise also dies to the ground every winter but comes back to be about a 2.5x2.5 feet bush. Also here in northeast Iowa it also suffers horridly from black spot almost every spring and early summer during the rainy periods though the plant doesn’t seem to be bothered by this much.

I have two Morden Sunrise plants here in my garden in Walla Walla. I have concluded that we are not big on blackspot here in this area of eastern Washington--zone 6 but down to -10 degrees a couple of times per winter with dry summers and blistering heat in August. At any rate, my Morden Sunrise plants have no blackspot even without spraying. What I did want to point out is that, at least for me, it took 4 years for my oldest plant to come into its own and be really bushy and blooming--many more blooms last year than previously. I am hoping that the newer one will develop similarly.
