Gardeners' Notes:

I'm northwest of Chicago, with cool and wet spring/fall, and hot summer. I like Honey Bouquet far better than Julia Child and Golden Celebration. It's most compact, always blooming, best disease-resistant, color that doesn't fade like Julia Child - It requires less space and less water than Golden Celebration.

The scent is pleasant honey in hot summer, but absolutely delicious in cool and wet weather, on a par with Golden Celebration. The scent is very strong in cool weather, smells heavenly of floral and honey.

An outstanding addition to the garden. This rose is not only decorative but is also a very good cut flower. Although a Floribunda, it has plenty of single stemed beauties that last forever on the bush and in the vase. Takes heat and humidity in stride, and is always in bloom. The color is more of a pale yellow in summer, but with cooler weather may develop a luscious apricot overlay. Fragrance is mild. Disease resistance is average for blackspot, but stays clean if sprayed with a good fungicide.
