Gardeners' Notes:

A definite must have in a north Texas garden. To the locals that can mean anything from -2 to 105 degrees Farenheit. Mine has only been in my garden since March 2012. Bought her from the Antique Rose emporium (online). She arrived in great condition and I got my first flush of blooms in May 2012. She started buttery yellow and became a deep, sunny yellow before the blooms died. These blooms lasted on the bush for almost three weeks. I was amazed. However, we did have a milder than usual Spring this year. She is beautiful and looks just like some of the pictures posted on this site. Not a pastel at all .Plant Julia Child if pastel is your thing.
I placed mine next to a dwarf purple crepe myrtle and the contrast was great. Some of her leaves are turning brassy (Early August 2012) so I am looking forward to my second flush. Hoping for a third before late Fall. Very impressed with this newbies performance!

I love this rose. I purchased this Nacogdoches rose at the now closed Naconiche Nursery in Nacogdoches. It has proven to be extremely hardy - surviving ice, snow, and temperatures ranging from 15 to 103 degrees with no special care. It survived 6 months in a pot while between moves. We have it planted in a mostly sunny site with afternoon shade and it seems to like it. The photos show it at about two years old.
