Show off your yellow roses--Part I
Since we have quite a few pinks and stripeys, I guess its time to start thinking yellows and yellow/blends. I don't have too many, but hope you enjoy them anyway.
Here's a darling mini: Sweet Diana.
One of my most floriferous: Austin's Molineux.
Blooms in clusters: Well-Being.
I used to have Austin's Happy Child. Just love that bloom. Included here for old time's sake.
I never think of this rose as yellow, but the official records always describe it as yellow with pink blush edges (or something like that). So here it is: Love and Peace.
Now here's a true yellow: Golden Showers Climber.
Is this a white/cream/pale yellow blend? Or a creamy yellow with lemon yellow center? I'm not sure, but it is a wonderful, disease-resistant, generously re-blooming rose with a large bloom: Elina.
Wasn't sure if Buff Beauty was stretching it too far--though one source used to describe it as a buff yellow blend, but I always thought that was exaggerating.
However, next spring I will be able to add two more yellow Austins: The Pilgrim climber and Lady of Shalott (though I'm not sure exactly what color that blend is).
Hope you enjoy. And show me your yellows too. I actually love yellow roses, just don't seem to have too many for some odd reason.
