Williams’ double yellow Rose—I have sometimes seen this named Persian Yellow, but both in flower and habit of growth it greatly differs from that variety. The yellow Rose to which I refer was raised by Mr. Williams, of Pitmaston, about 1826, and was said to have been raised from the single Austrian Brier. This Rose is rarely to be found in Rose lists, and there must surely be some reason for the omission, as the tree is very distinct from the Persian or Harrison’s Yellow; the flowers are larger and it continues longer in flower. I would be glad to know the cause of this old-fashioned Rose falling out of the lists of Roses worth growing.— Charles McDonald, Stokesley.

In my garden Persian Yellow has one huge flush of blossoms in early summer and then just a few off & on for the rest of the Summer. Healthy, but gets a touch of blackspot in late summer. I don't find the scent offensive.

It would be most useful if growers would be post the petal count ranges for Persian Yellow and would note if their blooms show scarlet streaks in the center.
