The Persian Yellow Rose was introduced to this country by Sir Henry Willock in 1838....In the Gardeners' Chronicle
for 1843 plants were advertised at 15 shillings each, a fabulous sum in those days for a new rose. Eventually its pollen was used to produced fine yellow modern roses.....5 feet by 4 feet.
