Comments Dutch Gold produces large, golden yellow roses sometimes touched with orange at the petals' edge. The rose is not quite as heartbreakingly beautiful as its pollen parent Whiskey Mac, but according to one report it is not nearly so disease-prone. Probably not a good choice where roses are ravaged by blackspot, but perhaps not terrible elsewhere.
