Anyone have a pic of Oregold or Aperitif?

sgsmith318July 9, 2005

I have a mystery rose I have narrowed down to one of these two...leaning toward O. I've looked at so many pics on helpmefind that I'm seeing double. Mine looks like the pics of Oregold more than Aperitif, but I'd love it if any has good shots of these in bud, bloom, and bush form...

Mine has 15-25 petals, large dark foliage, red new growth, mild to no fragrance, light butter color, huge full blooms that come all year singly and in clusters, sometimes quills a bit, and has a fine edge of orange on petals at bud stage but not later. I'd also heard it could be Mellow Yellow but can't find that rose anywhere...

Any help would be appreciated! Thanks! There are some pics of it from last year on the page link below.

cecilia_md7a(7a/Baltimore,MD) is a wonderful resource for rose photos to compare your blooms to. This is the URL for Helpmefind's photos of Aperitif:

I've linked to helpmefind's photos of Oregold below.

Unfortunatly, neither page shows the entire bush.
