Hi, everybody! This is a rose I have been trying to ID for years. It first belonged to my great-grandfather. He passed away about 30 years ago and my grandma got it. She is 82 years old and has had to move in with my parents, and she had one of these at her old home place that she couldn't prune anymore and it got to be about 15 ft. tall and 10 ft. around. I have about 6 bushes myself, and have traded some here on DG with no name to go with it. It is thornless and just gorgeous. I would appreciate it so much, if anybody could help me with this. Please, please, please!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks, Traci S

The leaves don't look typically Rose like although I may be wrong! I think it looks more like Kerria japonica pleniflora, heres a link

Baa and Sis, Thanks alot, but I have to agree with Baa. I believe that it is indeed the Japonica. Looks exactly like it! Thanks sooooo much, however my 92 year old great-grandpa named it and even though to myself and my family it'll always be "That Little Yellow Rose", I'll be sure to use the correct name for it on here and for trades.

Thanks, Traci S

Its flowers do look like a little double rose and they are a valuable shrub here in Britain, I have to say yours sounds much larger than any I've seen. They are pretty aren't they!

Traci, I am soo glad you finally found the true name for this plant...but being as though I know your family pretty well, I too am going to keep calling it "that little yellow rose" LOL we can just pretend that it is a rose can't we? LOL

My grandmother called this a 'Rock Rose', so you can imagine how confusing THAT was when I started trying to find some for myself!

Thanks alot everybody. I know that my grandma will be happy to know the real name of it. She'll still call it a rose , but so will I, can't help it. It' just been a rose for sooo long. Hey Baa and anyone else that may be interested, I posted a pic in the photo forum last night, so if you'd be interested in getting one of these, lmk. I hope that was the right place, becuz I wanted to show a pic of it and offer a trade with it's new name! OOPs! One more thing Baa, The blooms on the pic are the last of the latest blooms. In Spring they are much fuller and bigger! I had already cut this one back after blooming all summer and It came back and rebloomed on me that quick. Very very Hardy Japonica.

Thanks Sooooooooooo Much Everybody!!!

Hi Tracie

The pic is just great! The common name here for Kerria is Jew's Mantle but of course thats an English common name I understand that the American common name is Japanese Rose or Japanese Kerria. Maybe thats where the rose name came from in the first place :)

Hello again everybody! First of all Baa, I betcha that is where the rose name came in at. I have always thought it looked like a thornless rose, and that's why I never ?'ed it being a rose.

Ms Batt, Did you ever find any of this Rock Rose? If you didn't, I'd be glad to trade with ya. Just let me know!

Thanks again,
Traci
