Comments Many gold-colored flowers are too strongly colored for the border, but this one is just soft enough to live well with nearly every color except lilac and mauve. It's a vigorous and health plant that flowers regularly. A rating of 6.5 on a pink rose would warn one to try a better roses first, but it is hard to do much better among coppery tinged gold roses.
