This rose is sturdy enough that you don't have to grow it as a climber if you don't want to. Mine is growing as a shrub (I have only so many places for climbing roses). I love all the shades of pale yellow, gold, apricot, salmon, and copper it displays at once--the deeper colors on the buds and new flowers, softening as they age. The blooms are loose and plentiful.

I am so very happy with this rose. I am growing it as a climber on a trellis, from ground up to a second story deck, and continuing up the sides of the deck railing. Very vigorous grower and bloomer. It responds extremely well to pruning, which I do in March and then after the first big bloom, plus tidying at end of summer. I deadhead regularly. It seems immune to disease, even last spring and summer, which started out so cold and wet my other roses just dropped their spotty leaves in disgust (I don't use sprays). And the blooms are gorgeous and smell heavenly. It is the first rose I planted and is turning out to be the standard to judge others by in my garden.

A very pretty rose. My second-year plant is doing great, and I planted another one this year. This rose starts out with orange buds that open up to light golden-orange flowers. I never used to even consider using orange in the garden, but I now love this color! (At least in limited amounts.) It looks wonderful in combination with yellow and blue.
