Comments At least four roses have been named Bonanza or contain it in part of the name. To varying extents they could all be described as having yellow petals with some amount of red pigment. KORmarie is a 5 ft shrub with yellow flowers that are kissed with red. But there are hybrid tea roses by Kordes and Verbeek whose descriptions are similar. Confronted with a possible Bonanza, it is useful to be a little careful and circumspect.
