Whiskey Mac

Low Roses | Bushes | Shrubs | Climbers
Photo of Rose Whiskey Mac Whiskey Mac is among the more luminous of the golden hybrid teas: perhaps it is the brightest. It is very fragrant. And the bronze new foliage looks super against the blossoms. Unfortunately, its singular virtues are overbalanced by unsurmountable problems. It's not vigorous, the flowers are not large or high centered, it is prone to black spot and mildew.

Those who can lavish upon it the care it requires - especially those who live in a Mediterranean climate - might grow to love this rose. Many others will give up or have the rose give up on them. ARS members rate it 5.1, but rose suppliers love to sell it.
