Still own this rose. Its among the few that never get the shovel treatment.

It's a very easy rose. Cuttable. Looks cute. Grows well. Nice, moderate scent. Blooms a lot.

It did get severe dieback in Winter 2016/17, but bounced right back, and it does fade poorly. But it blooms a lot so who cares.

Conclusion: Not perfect, but easy mode and stays in its lane.

Orange to yellow/cream/pale pink. Not yellow as it is often shown in catalogues. Very little yellow in fact. Very mild fragrance. Cluster-flowered. A good rosebush.

Mine is strong apricot except in extreme August heat, which it becomes a pastel coral shade. I like the color change though.

Yes, beautiful, isn't it, Michael?! More orange than yellow, don't you think?

In a way, yes. It is like it is layered underneath when seeing it in person. I find it hard to describe, which I find amusing lol. But I agree that it isn't a true yellow whatsoever.

Would I be able to train the Tequila rose on a 5'h x 6'w iron fence? I think the fence is too small for a regular climber, so trying to think of something else. I also have Graham Thomas, but that doesn't bloom frequently enough for this fence (focal point). Any other suggestions?

Sorry, Claudia. Have only just discovered your question ... I guess Tequila would manage it ... if pruned in the right way. Though it might take some time. Otherwise I have Polka, a climber which blooms very frequently. Any good? Not quite as striking colour-wise, I'm afraid. But it's a nice one all the same ...

Thank you so much for the suggestion. Actually I went and found the "Blaze of Glory" rose on sale at Armstrong, a climber so we're all set! I'll have to find another home for a Tequila!

Golden Holstein (KORtikel) x Bonica is the parentage according to google patent.

Outstanding source of patent information I haven't used before. Thanks for the lead.

I realy like it. It is better than the goverment site as far as finding information.

The huge negative is that they are patent images and thus I cannot print the text here as absolute confirmation. Linking the reference shows a huge google string.
