Just a few rose thoughts... does anyone grow Soleil d'Or on the Prairies? Is it diseasey here? The comments on Helpmefind say it's disgusting and blackspot riddled, but I have only seen blackspot a couple of times in my garden. Any experience?
Also, does anyone have a favourite yellow, apricot or orange rose that does reasonably well here? I already have Agnes and I'd consider it more buttery, and Rio Samba which is garish and I love it. Used to have Sunsprite and Autumn Sunset but they died &/or I moved. I am seriously considering buying Harison's Yellow again even though it's a bit of a hooligan.
