This Mellow Yellow bloom is such a pretty yellow. Think it's my best one so far!

Wow!! Talk about an electric looking yellow!! I've always wondered if that is a good rose. It's always at the greenhouse I haunt. What do you think of it?

RE: Mellow Yellow

Carol - I know it looks really yellow. It's considered a softer shade of yellow than some. Maybe our weather lately has caused it to be a brighter shade. Seems to be a good bloomer, but some of the flowers have been on the small side, but it is just getting established. I like it for the most part. I order roses from several companies here in the US, this one came from Witherspoon. Actually I ordered 2 Midas Touch roses and they let me know that one of them wasn't good enough to ship and asked me if Mellow Yellow would be a suitable substitute and I said it would be, so I didn't even order it intentionally. I don't really mind when companies substitute, just gives me a chance to try something new. Midas Touch is a brighter yellow, have grown it for years, love it. It doesn't have very many petals, but it's a good bloomer and looks pretty on the bush. My other yellows are Ch Ching (not sure about it yet). and Sunsprite. Sunsprite, is a floribunda, has a lovely fragrance, it clusters and also has some blooms one to a stem. The flowers are a nice size for a floribunda, love it! I do think Mellow Yellow will be a worthy contender in my garden from what I've seen so far. It just needs to get established good.

Wow! Lots of flowers. You got a winner.

Have patience with your Ch-Ching. Mine is fabulous!! My pictures are all still in my camera, and I'm not sure how to unload. My family will help me one of these days. :) Tons of flowers, lots of branches. But the first year - not so much.

RE: Mellow Yellow

Carol, thank you. Glad to know your Ch-Ching is doing good. Some roses take a little longer. Would love to see pictures when you get the chance. I get help from family on such things too, especially my 15 year old granddaughter, she's great!

Mellow Yellow blooming again, doesn't look too bad considering the heat we've had recently.

RE: Mellow Yellow

That is one hot looking rose....love it! Yellows seem a bit difficult for me. South Africa has been outstanding and my Gold Medal is nice but not a great bloomer. Mellow Yellow is one for me to consider. Thanks Sara-Ann. Lelsey

RE: Mellow Yellow

And thank you, Lesley! I saw a picture of your South Africa on another post, it is gorgeous! Mellow Yellow has been a pleasant surprise for me this season.

RE: Mellow Yellow

I love Mellow Yellow next to the pink rose! Great combo.

RE: Mellow Yellow

Thank you Iris. That is Pink Peace planted next to it, one of my favorites. it doesn't have a lot of blooms at once, but it repeats really quickly and it has a lovely fragrance.

RE: Mellow Yellow

Thanks Sara-Ann. I rather like the look of roses with scattered bloom. Quick repeat is fantastic. Love yellow - pink combos when the shade are right and Pink Peace looks like it would combine well.

Do Pink Peace blooms last longer than Peace? TIA

RE: Mellow Yellow

Iris - The bed where I have my Pink Peace and Mellow Yellow faces the west, it can get very hot in the afternoon and early evening, so if the temps are really high the Pink Peace roses wilt easily. Most of the time they hold up really well though. If I had them planted in my south bed I don't think they would do that. I wouldn't say it lasts longer than Peace. My Peace last good on the bush and in the vase both. Pink Peace is a nice rose, not perfect but lovely. I've included a close-up picture.

RE: Mellow Yellow

Ooooh!!! Your photo of Pink Peace is wonderful. I love that rose!!! So pretty and the scent is like fruit loops!

Wow!!

RE: Mellow Yellow

Thanks, Carol. Iris - In case you check this post again, thought I would post another picture of Pink Peace Seems like the really warm weather lightens the color somewhat, but it is still lovely.

RE: Mellow Yellow

RE: Mellow Yellow

Carol - In case you check, here is a picture of Ch Ching. This is its 2nd flush of 30 plus buds after what seemed to be a mediocre performance. I think I have a winner. I love the old fashioned look of this bloom.

RE: Mellow Yellow

Yes, that's gorgeous!! A purely phenomenal rose here. So many blooms. I've cut so many for the house.

Your picture is really stunning. Great job!
