Yellow Floribunda Rose

Originally, I bought this rose for a client.
She chose a Persian Jewel instead, it died.
The leaves of the floribunda were spotted, but this was caused by an overcrowded bench at the nursery.
I knew with care, I could keep this rose spot free.
For a yellow rose, the disease resistance is exceptional.
All it needed was good air circulation and mulch to protect the leaves from mud splashes during heavy rains.

I have 4 more roses waiting for the soil to warm and the temperature to stay about 12C (53F)
Visit the gallery to view those already in the garden.
