Photo of RoseAmbridge Rose For two centuries rose breeders have tried to breed a disease-free, shrubby, foliferous yellow rose. This sport of the equally solid orange shrub, Westerland, does this and in light shade and poor soil.

It will fill up a space six feet across and high. But it looks good out of bloom too, so it's a well behaved garden plant.

ARS members give Autumn Sunset a solid 7.7. You do have to be patient with it, for it must build up over two, three, or even four years as is the case for many large shrubs. In my garden, it's been worth the wait.
