This is another of those unique gardener's experiences we sometimes are fortunate enough to have. Several years ago, I moved two climbing "Joseph's Coat" roses and one died. The other survived but when it bloomed in the spring, it was a beautiful solid yellow. I researched and found that the parentage of "Joseph's Coat" is 'Buccaneer' x 'Circus', and apparently the yellow 'Buccaneer' is the part that survived. It has never been a strong grower but it's such a beautiful yellow, has a nice fragrance and has a mauve clematis climbing through it now which is a lovely combination. It grows to about 4 ft. next to a 'doorway' in my cedar rose arbor. I think I might order another one next year for the other side of the doorway.
