Known by many as the "yellow rose of Texas". Whether grown in hot Texas or the numbing cold of the north, each June these big 5 to 6 foot shrub roses put on a spectacular display as bright yellow, 2 inch double flowers cascade from long arching canes. Their strong licorice scent perfumes the air. Soft grayish-green foliage has a delicate appearance that belies this rose's durability and tenacity. It blooms only once a season, but what a show!

    Did not survive a relatively mild zone 4 winter even though it was covered with snow. Plant grew first summer, but was not very vigorous.
    * Admin Notes added 7/20/2015 11:37:09 AM:
    Often it is wet soil in winter, not cold temperatures, that causes the failure of roses to overwinter successfully. In heavy, clay soils, amending with organic matter like peat moss, compost, or rotted manure is helpful for improving soil drainage. Planting in a raised bed will also help.
    Avoid fertilizing roses late in the season (after mid-summer) to prevent stimulating growth that is unlikely to fully harden off before cold temperatures set in. Stop deadheading roses in late summer to early fall to encourage them to begin preparing for the dormant period.
    Winters with fluctuating temperatures can be more stressful than those with continuous cold conditions. Even hardy rose varieties may benefit from some winter protection in cold climates to improve winter survival. Mulching with 4 to 6 inches of organic mulch like chopped leaves or straw after the soil freezes will help to insulate the roots from cold and temperature fluctuations. For more tender varieties and in particularly cold climates, hilling up roses by mounding 6 inches of soil around the base of the plant, and applying 6 to 12 inches of mulch once the ground has lightly frozen, will protect the rose from winter extremes.
