Comments In sunny climes it will gladly grow to 10 ft in which case it is best self-pegged. Its above average ARS rating suggests that it is a solid rose. The flowers range in color from pale cantaloupe to rich orange in color. The sport "Yellow Charles Austin" appears to be more popular, but the warmth of tone of the original is still not common among English roses.
