it is a rose that will require much care here in the colorado elevation. slow growing, very lovely rose, however there are too many yellows now that last longer, grow larger and are more cold climate tolerant. the color is very beautiful perhaps the best of all the yellows. grown 3 and all have perished. with massive mulch still did not make it.

My favorite thing about this rose is the smell. Oregold has the sweetest smell of all my roses. The blooms are a lovely shade of yellow during spring, but they do get "washed out" by summer. Of course, I do live in Mississippi so that isn't completely unexpected.

Beautiful flower, but very stingy in bloom, and not at all hardy in cold climates.

I love the color and form of this rose, but it is rather tender in zone 5. It needs good winter protection.
