Comments The gold, copper, coral, yellow, and orange roses frequently go out of distribution soon after they are introduced, but this one has grabbed so many awards, there is hope that it might remain in distribution for a bit. It's an attractive and garden-friendly golden color. The blossoms are frequently high-centered, though they are not very large. Under perfect conditions, the plant is grows well and produces flowers with good continuity. It does not do well in poor soil, in shade, or with drought.
