Lynley Neal. My Favourite Climbers. 'Arrowtown'. This produces deep golden yellow blooms from late October and repeats rapidly. If grown in full sun a fifth flush of blooms can be enjoyed.

Final Analysis 1991-92. 'Arrowtown; Martin, 1982. Apricot to golden yellow; 26 reports on 34 plants; 1-9 years; 2.2 metres. 7.7 rating. Well reported on from Franklin to Otago and all reporters seem quite enthusiastic with no ratings below 7. It is healthy, grows well although more pillar habit than true climber. A report from Nelson states their one has leaf mosaic. Blooms well all season, short stems and most think the second flowering the best. Looks as though it is worthwhile to grow in a sought after golden yellow colouring.

Don Sheppard. Review of Newer Roses for 1989-90 Season
Climbers. Arrowtown Martin 1982; apricot to golden yellow; 6 reports; 9 climbers; 1-7 years; 2.5m; 7.5 rating. This climber is a slow starter and may take a year or two to reach desired height and width, but once there it is quite a joy to have. The large, well-formed blooms, of good clean colour, come in singles and clusters and stand rain well. Repeat is quick for most. There is a fragrance, too. Plant health is good. Worthwhile, as gold climbers are few and far between.

p23 Conrad Harneiss, Franklin. Climbers and Pillars. 'Arrowtown' is very healthy, very vigorous and of medium to big proportions. Big - very big - open blooms, yellow tinged red, following apricot buds. It should have a very good future.

p98. Don Sheppard. Review of Newer Roses for the 1988-89 Season. 'Arrowtown' Martin 1982. apricot/yellow 4 reports; 6 plants; 1-6 years; 2m plus, 7.5 rating Franklin, Taranaki, Westland and Central Otago all like this climber. They say the colour holds well and the blooms are large, on healthy foliaged branches. One reporter says it is similar to 'Mme. Pierre S. duPont'. All reporters say it is worthwhile, healthy and not too vigorous.

Don Sheppard. Review of Newer Roses for the 1987-88 Season.
Climbers. Arrowtown Martin NZ 1982; apncot/yellow; 3 reports; 3 bushes; 5 years; 2m plus; 8.0 rating. Good yellow, non-fading roses are always sought after and climbers even more so. From reports it appears that we have one here. I do wish more members would report on climbers - or do we not grow them any more? This one grows well, covers the fence and gives an eye-catching display. It is healthy and perhaps at its best in autumn. (One member in Cromwell grows 7 plants and is very pleased with them! Ed.)
Book  (1986)  
p57 Editor, Dawn Chisholm. In Mr. and Mrs. McGhee's garden we saw a beautiful yellow climbing rose which we discovered was 'Arrowtown'.

p118 Don Sheppard. Review of Newer Roses for the 1985-86 Season. 'Arrowtown'. Martin, 1982. apricot to golden-yellow; 3 reports; 3 bushes, 2 years; 2m plus; 7.8 rating. One report, from its namesake area, Cromwell, says that, like the village, it is absolutely beautiful in autumn; it is healthy and is growing well. Central Taranaki and Feilding report plenty of bloom, good colour and health. This all sounds very good! More reports, next year, please.
