Wow!! Midas Touch is on fire - talk about a bright yellow!!!

I really like your Chris Evert. Does it have fragrance? Does it get a lot of blooms?

Very nice! Thanks for the look.

I've had visitors claim that Chris Evert is fragrant but I can't smell it. She's been one of my best bloomers though, and since it's only her first year I'm hoping that she'll get more fragrant with time.

I love Midas Touch, yellows are my favorite and he's about as yellow as they get! Doesn't fade much either, the petals stay pretty yellow right until they fall off. I cannot detect any fragrance.

I'm so glad I got Helmut Schmidt, I was going to pass on him because he's much paler than my other yellows but he was the only yellow on a local rose society 'best' list and I can see why he's so popular.

I can't wait to expand my collection!
