Leander and Yellow Buttons - Body bags

adamharbeck(WA Aust)August 8, 2014

Just picked up two discount roses.
Has anyone got any experience with or comments on these varieties?

Leander is a modern ground cover shrub. There is info about it on Help Me Find/roses. Yellow Buttons is not on HMF, and when I googled it I did not find anything either. Could it have another name?

Thanks Jackie.
I found it on hmf (no s)
I was just looking for people's prrsonal experiences with these early Austins. Particularly in California.

Here is a link that might be useful: Yellow button

I take it these two aren't very popular. It will be an experiment I guess.

I really like my Leander - love the color and the scent. Mine sprawls rather like a climber which is fine - I have it planted where there is plenty of room. I don't think it blooms as much as some other Austins, but I happen to like it a lot, it is quite healthy for me. It bloomed quite a bit this spring - its now resting and trying to survive our Texas heat - am sure it will bloom well in the fall.
