Photo of Rose Sublest Botanica's writer calls this "one of the best yellows," but ARS members rate it "barely gets by, 6.2."

The yellow shown happens to be a favorite tint - imperial silk yellow. It's one of the more garden friendly of the yellows. It's not easy to tell whether it's gotten this color by fading or if it started this color, but it is nice. Other yellows can produce really sickly looking flowers once the petals start to fade in the sun.

The rose does best where there is plenty of sunlight, little humidity, and not too much heat; it does fall prey to black spot.
