The Yellow Roses I Love Best

jerijen(Zone 10)June 14, 2014

We don't have many yellow roses, but the ones we have are all either blooming, or about to.

These are the yellows I love best -- All fragrant here. All disease-resistant here. All generous bloomers. One Austin, Two Bardens, and a Foundling from the Sierra Foothills:

I'm becoming quite fond of the yellow Jeri Jennings. She takes shade well and is bright bloom beneath a dogwood.

Beautiful, Jeri!

I'm wondering if you've ever seen Paul Barden's 'Golden Buddha' growing in your area. I have it here, and while it stays small, it is very hardy -- and makes huge flowers scented of apricots. I think it'll max out at about 2' X 2', full and bushy, so if you have a little nook somewhere, give it a try. I know you don't really get blackspot there, but here on the East coast (where virtually everything not sprayed will get some) it remained totally clean all season. It starts out a strong apricot verging on orange, but fades to eventually becoming a sort of off-white -- and if not dead-headed, will hold its petals and form for another week on the plant.

:-)

ETA -- here's a pic of a little bouquet I cut for a couple who always requests me at my job (and emails me to make sure I'm working). The roses are 'Golden Celebration' and 'Golden Buddha'. The pic was taken the day after they were cut and texted to me.

Here is a link that might be useful: 'Golden Buddha' at HelpMeFind

I was so happy to see this post, yellows are my favorite! I've never heard of jeri Jennings, very lovely. That Golden Buddah is breathtaking!! I will be adding that one to my list of must haves.

Thanks!

I am hugely flattered to see not one, but two of my roses appear on Jeri's list! Thank you!

Jeri, I think you'd like 'Gold Glow'!

But the king of yellow roses will always be R. hemisphaerica . . .

BUT R. hemisphaerica would not prosper here. I feel blessed that ANY of the yellows really do.

Yes, Paul -- TWO of yours. :-)

Great pictures! My band of Jeri Jennings has probably doubled in size since I potted it up after receiving it from Burling. The blooms it arrived with were not quite as vibrant as your -likely more mature- plant, but they were gorgeous.

How large does/has Licorice Tea gotten for you so far, Jeri?

Vintage Gardens carried a lovely yellow called (I think) 'Evona's Yellow'. Does anyone grow it?

I used to grow 'Evonas Yellow' it defoliated from blackspot and we got rid of it for that reason, but it bore beautiful blooms, with the foliage and blooms showing a strong character of the Pernetiana group.
now that my 'Marechal Niel' has died and broken my heart after I cosseted and pampered him for 3 years, ( I feel like writing a country-western song about him "Golden as mustard, he was a thieving bustard, that stole my heart awaaaay') I still can't look at a yellow rose without experiencing a pang in my heart.

I'm very fond of yellow roses and have a whole bed devoted to them. Jeri, your beautiful photos make me wish I had room for expansion..

Lux, you always make my day. Marechal Niel broke my heart the same way; good-lookin', weak-rooted two-timer that he was.

I note that Evona's Yellow came from SoCal -- where it likely didn't blackspot. And nor, it wouldn't at Vintage, where conditions are highly acidic.

Lux, I eventually want DH to propagate "Rustler's Gold." It's good for Alice Flores, so maybe it would be OK for you.

Jeri, I love yellow/apricot/golden hued roses, too. I wasn't expecting very much from Teasing Georgia this year - I bought her as an own root plant in a 2.5 litre pot twelve months ago and she faded to white almost immediately in last Summer's heat. However, this year she has been very floriferous and has a wonderful 'tea rose' fragrance, too. Here she is -

You guys crack me up. I've been coveting Marechal Niel for a while but based on the feedback, I might scratch him off my list. I don't want my heart broken.

I love Jeri's list too. My Jeri Jennings is growing nicely in her pot. The blooms are so heavy on my little plant that they totally weigh down the tiny branches.

Here is a picture of Sunshine Daydream. She is a rose that is new to my garden this spring but I loved her the minute I saw her planted en masse at the Columbus Park of Roses last year so I had to have her.

Sadly, no. Heck, I can't even grow it in my cool coastal zone. Not enough heat for it, 95% of the time.

And then there is this lovely yellow Austin climber: The Pilgrim.

I also like the yellow shades mixed into Austin's Molineux and Lady of Shalott. In fact, any rose with even dots of yellow in it will get my attention. Let's face it--I'm a yellow rose lover.

No photos yet, but I am enjoying my little "Cl Yellow Sweetheart" I left the first set of buds on to make sure she is what she is supposed to be, but will be pinching and hoping she grows and skips blooming She already has a new cane popping up from the ground.

Kippy, 'Cl Yellow Sweetheart' put on a lot of growth for me in its first year (but unfortunately was also hit hard by Winter and got cut back quite a bit this year, though that's not an issue for you). It also kept trying to bloom, but like you're doing, I didn't let it after its first cluster just to confirm identity. I've come to learn that the fragrance is very light, despite how its described at RVR (Paul Barden confirmed this in a thread from last year).

May I make a suggestion about a climbing companion? I have a row of climbing roses against my fence, with a clematis on either side. For 'Cl Yellow Sweetheart', I put clematis 'Niobe' on its left, and one of several bluish-purple on its right (I don't remember which one is there). I took a pic when the rose and 'Niobe' were blooming together. Though they're still babies, I think the color contrast is wonderful, and look forward to when they fill-out against the fence.

:-)

Casino is a beautiful yellow climber that is not often grown. It works well with older roses and is very elegant. I have no yellows now because I don't have an area where they would look right with my old rose color scheme of white through pink and mauve/purple. I do have Cl. Lady Hillingdon though, although she's struggling with the heat and drought. If I had any room left that isn't vertical and the necessary water I'd love to have roses ranging from cream through yellow and apricot, with lavender, purple and white reblooming irises, sea lavender and other companion plants.

For zone 5, there do seem to be a few yellows that are possible.

'Roberta Bondar', from Joyce Fleming in Canada, is in full, spectacular bloom in my yard right now. So far it seems to be a kind of over-sized HT shrub. I bought it grafted from the Rosemeister who had it from one of the Canadian nurseries.

'Goldregen' from Noack in Germany actually came back this year. I thought I had lost it so I ordered a new one during the last, last VG sale. The day after the new 'Goldregen' arrived, I noticed new growth from the old one. It is a short climber, or pillar rose, with the prettiest, ruffled , soft yellow blooms, which are about 4-5" dia. They really stand out in a garden. I am planting the new one against a south facing wall. I might be able to make cuttings available next summer; this rose needs to be in commerce in North America.

Palatine this year was offering grafted plants of my all time favorite, Cl. Sunflare, so I threw away caution and bought one. It is also against a south facing wall and has a sidewalk (heat sink) in front of it. It is now growing with its' usual health and vigor and not a trace of virus so far on the shiny leaves.

Christopher, Cl Yellow Sweetheart does seem to want to bloom. Newly planted band and off it is going. I so want to dip in to the clematis catalog, but for now, I am going to stick with the roses and the rest of the yard fix up. Have to have something to look forward right?

Golden Celebration is in bloom again, I love that shade, but would like to try a couple of the Paul Barden's like Jeri Jennings and Licorice Tea. Glad to read how well they are doing in Jeri's garden.

I do want a full sized bush of Julia Child. I love my little tree rose but need more

Organic_Tosca -- Thanks! I'm normally not very good at design, so I tried simply to put together complimentary colors or contrasting light/dark so things set each other off.

Kippy -- I agree about waiting on the clematis. Some others here advised me that putting them in the same year as the roses would be better, since they tend to "sleep" their first year. My clematis went in a year after the roses, and I'm glad I did it that way -- some are really taking off! They might have overwhelmed newly-planted roses which came bands in their first year. When you're ready, I highly recommend Brushwood Nursery. All but one of mine came from there (I got 'Sweet Summer Love' from Bluestone Perennials), and they proved to be healthy and vigorous -- and the selection there is impressive. And so far, the bird/deer netting I nailed against the fence is working great -- after just a little guidance, the clematis are pretty much climbing it on their own. Now all I do is direct them the way I want them to go.

:-)

A lot of yellows struggle in very cold winters, but this Brownell climber is likely more cold-hardy. It doesn't repeat, I gather, but it's pretty gorgeous.
