More of a shrub than a FL for me. If it only had a few more petals it would have taken over the world. So strong and so willing to breed, it IS a very important ancestor to many and Typhoo Tea comes to mind most as for sure Typhoo has Arthur's foliage and bolt-upright growth pattern. Yellow roses STILL have not been perfected and I am going to dare to say lavender/lilac has in 2016 actually surpassed yellow for strength and vigor. Sunsprite could be released today and be notable, so far ahead of its time and very much fits into the FL class. Arthur Bell, to wrap this up, has almost a decade ON Sunsprite, is also very vigorous and also very hardy and COULD be released in 2016 and make someone some money and many gardeners very happy. For me this is a GREAT rose that I don't that much "like" ??? But there is a PLACE for this one and not just in the records as "parent."

A very fine yellow rose with excellent qualities. Grows into a very elegant and neat vase-shaped bush. The leaves are apple green, very healthy and with a beautiful shape and position on the branches. Add to that the long flower stems above the leaves, which make the cluster of buds look interesting and attractive as well. The flowers have a great scent, petals drop off cleanly, and the hips are beautiful and large. They last around 5 days here and are somewhat ok with rain. Highly recommended also in colder and wetter localities.

how close should I plant the Arthur Bell? How many per square meter or so? A "specialist" told me to plant 6 to 9 per square meter. Ist that correct?

Greetings, Lorenz

Arthur Bell usually grows into an upright bush about 3 feet tall and 2 feet wide. He would then require a space of about 3 foot square. The general rule for an average rose bush, is to keep about a minimum of 4 feet from the base of one rose to the base of another. This allows for good air circulation around the plants.
