Gardeners' Notes:

Pictures do NOT do this one justice and it is nothing short of FABULOUS! VERY pretty single rose! When it first opens it is GOLDEN yellow... as it ages, it fades to a very pale yellow with a gold center and very prominent stamens.

Haven't had a bit of problem with blackspot (of course I apply regular treatments of Neem) at all. It is a bit of a slow grower and has only bloomed twice since I got it about 3 months ago. I am sure once it gets a little older, it will take off! I cannot wait!
