Gardeners' Notes:

Wonderful Rose!
Mine is at least 10 years old and the trunk is like a small tree. It's twined into a chainlink fence.
I need to redo that entire area where it's living and dread having to cut her back severely to move her.

Gorgeous, fragrant rose that does fine with neglect.
Blooms almost continuously.
Love the colors too.

Disease resistant. Mine is about 4' x 4' but not a compact shrub, rather, large arching canes. Coloring is so unique.

From's list of carefree roses by Mary C. Weaver:

'Buff Beauty': Few blooms have the distinctive buffy apricot-yellow color of this tough but graceful hybrid musk rose. Medium-sized double flowers with a tea-rose fragrance are produced in large clusters, with reliable repeat. The foliage is large, thick, medium-green and semiglossy, with good disease resistance. Canes are moderately prickly, and new growth in spring is colored plum-red, creating a beautiful contrast with the first flush of bloom. Introduced in 1939, 'Buff Beauty' was hybridized by Ann Bentall. Hardy to Zone 5 or 6. Vigorous, rather horizontal spreading growth, reaching a height of about 6 feet.
