Delicious scent! This is my third year with this rose and its exremely disease resistant. Blooms well all summer...but its the scent that makes this rose so wonderful.

Planted bare root (from J&P) early July, 1st flowers a month or so later. Very happy with this rose. As name implies, flower is bright lemon yellow. Mine have 100-125 petals and are approx 2 1/2". Very little fragrance, but that may be conditions here (i only occationally get any scent from the dozen different roses I have)... they are described as having lemon-grove scent.
