It's certainly vigorous. In its first season it grew to 8 ft in height and bloomed with good continuity through the season. I'm quite fond of the flower's shape, size and fragrance. The color is bright and clear while being quite garden friendly - a tough balance for a yellow rose. I love the glossy foliage, too. I'm hoping I can get it to branch well in subsequent seasons, and that it might endure spring freezing which is inevitable here.

I had this rose for about a decade, before moving. My tip for getting it to branch and bloom more -- prune it high and lightly to shape. do NOT hard prune it, or it will just want to grow high and throw out just a few super huge blooms only.

I loved this rose. It was very easy to grow and it never had BS/mildew.

Since I rarely prune roses very hard, MG, your pruning advice has been very easy to follow.

I've now had two plants in my garden since 2012.One died of a gopher attack two years back but it was promptly replaced. There is not a hybrid tea rose that I have ever attempted that grows with the same vigor (in the coolish summer climates where I've grown roses). It's almost an embarrassment of riches in this regard. Not too vigorous to control, but enough to surprise.

The blossoms are not huge by HT standards, but they are very nicely formed, with pretty, scrolled petals. There is a very pleasant fragrance to the flowers. New foliage has a pretty gloss to it, and some yellow tint - like the foliage of Julia Child. Never touched by blackspot or mildew in my experience. One of the very few HT roses completely immune to the late spring freezes that plague my mountain garden.

May I ask what size the blooms are? In centimetres or inches, doesn't matter. Thank you

My impression is that the petals are just about two or two and a half inches long (5 or 5.5 cm) so fully open the blossoms would be about four or five inches across. Because it tends to be well branched for a HT, IME, it seems generous with its flowers.

Big enough! :-) Thank you

About 4-5" in mid-summer, but 6" in Pacific NW spring (blooms bigger here), so about on par with Ingrid Bergman or Secret blooms, but not quite as big as Neptune or Proud Land blooms.

Oh, I love it when I know there's the possibility of them getting bigger! I'm in Amsterdam, our summers don't get very hot (compared to South Africa where I'm from), so possibly they would be bigger here too

This rose is amazingly resistant to anything. We've had everything from a vicious winter to drought to high humidity in Southern Ontario & this rose just keeps powdery mildew, no blackspot, no rust, no canker, no thrips, no bugs of any sort...... nothing has affected it, despite its various neighbours being affected to some extent by the above....very reliable & low maintenance rose giving lovely blooms with a delicate scent.
