Grows into a large, graceful, arching shrub with no special care. The blooms are a lovely shade of soft yellow. It is always the first rose to bloom in spring Z7b.

Positive TBGDN On Mar 10, 2006, TBGDN from Macy, IN wrote:

Also known as Golden Rose of China, 1899. Somewhere I've read this cultivar was brought back from China by a missionary priest, Father Hugo, apparently in the late 1800's. However, I see in the data at the top of this page that it was hybridized by Wilson; and the year of registration or Introduction was 1899. Information is somewhat lacking in mainstream rose publications for plants past 100 years old.
