St. Patrick

Low Roses | Bushes | Shrubs | Climbers
Photo of Rose St. Patrick St. Patrick is the patron saint of Ireland and this rose is named in his honor because under some conditions the rose has a definite green cast to it. No yellow hybrid tea produces more formally organized high-centered blossoms. For these two qualities this rose will be around for a long time.

The rose has healthy dark matt green foliage that is quite disease resistant. It is not strongly branched, making this a rose best suited for the cutting bed. It was bred by an amateur and has already found very widespread and support, suggesting that it has gotten around on its unique and strong set of merits. ARS members rate it 8.0.
