Gardeners' Notes:

I live in zone 9a Katy, Texas. I found it very easy to root this plant using rooting hormone, and moisture control soil in a pot covered with a plastic dome. I rooted about half a dozen, gave some away as gifts, planted two of the "babies" in my landscape. I love it! In the winter and spring it is apricot colored and quite double - makes good cut flowers that last days. In the heat of the summer the blooms are more semi-double, more of a fawn color (light golden) and last only a couple days as a cut flower. This is very disease and insect resistant, and extremely healthy. It has beautiful plum-red new foliage, even in the winter time. Not fussy and drought tolerant. In the spring through the fall it blooms profusely. This is my MOST reliable yellow rose. The pictures of Safrano on this site do not do it justice, it is MUCH prettier. I love this rose!!!!!
