'William Booth' is a fabulous rose! I have it planted with 'Golden Wings' shrub rose to fill in the planting area. The smaller pink WB compliments larger single pale yellow GW flowers. 'William Booth' looks similar to a wild rose, but blooms all season long. Does well in part shade. Is completely disease free and very vigorous. My favorite Explorer Rose.
