Comments Mellow Yellow reminds us that all yellows are not created equal. Its soft, almost primrose yellow of imperial yellow silk is a shade of yellow that doesn't fight with pale pinks that pervade the rose garden. It looks good with dark warm colors, too. And as is true of all yellows it looks stunning with the plentiful dark green foliage. There is a touch of citrus scent. On the down side, the flowers are not exhibition quality, and the rose is not resistant to blackspot.
