Gardeners' Notes:

Positive Zeppy On Jun 7, 2010, Zeppy from Shenandoah Valley, VA (Zone 6b) wrote:

Lovely color, problem free, and yes! -- it is fragrant. Sweet tea scent, stronger than my (non climber) Iceberg.

Positive Larabee On Nov 9, 2005, Larabee from Houston, TX wrote:

This is a pretty problem-free rose, and one of the very rare yellow roses recommended for Houston. Yellow roses just don't seem to do well here, in general. St Patrick has a VERY high petal count and is quite lovely. No noticeable fragrance at all.
