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.
