This is absolutely the most stunning rose I have ever seen. I have only had mine for a couple of weeks but have two buds that have opened with at least another 10 on the plant. The red is super vibrant and the yellow really is a mustard-y color.

I am very happy with this variety. I know lots of people are giving it a hard time about its name. But I have only had it in the ground about 6 weeks and it has taken to the soil very well. It has sent out a fair amount of growth. And the first three roses have bloomed. The red is a stunning shade. The yellow is more apparent before the rose fully opens. Then it is visible primarily from the sides. Oh, and the blooms hold up nicely. So far they haven't faded a bit in over a week. They do not emit a fragrance though. Although the ants did find the unopened buds to their liking. Before I annihilated them. All-in-all this is a visually-appealing rose. I can't wait to see how it performs throughout the season.

Just bought this shrubby rose from a local nursery. It comes from Weeks Roses. The blooms are unique - they are vivid yellow inside, and bright red outside. When it reblooms (I have 7 buds right now, having just cut off the 10 or so it had when I bought it), I will post a picture.
