Hybrid Tea

This yellow hybrid tea was fabled for its fantastic color, form, and fragrance.

  • Vigorous and disease resistant.
  • Suitable for zones 5 to 10.
  • Easy to grow.
  • Repeat blooming.
  • Mild fruit fragrance.

Whether it's named for the metal or the beautiful State is hard to say. But, no matter what, the lasting deep yellow color of the big pointed buds and large finely-formed flowers is certainly a beauty to behold. Cheerful golden tones make these very full, high-centered blooms are simply impeccable.

GROWTH HABIT

The glossy ­polished dark green leaves make the blooms sparkle all the more. Cool conditions improve color & size. Due to the cold climate in Germany where is was first bred, it only grew in a shrub form. It wasn't until Jackson and Perkins introduced this rose to the United States that it was discovered that it grows much taller in hot climates, where it becomes perfect for climbing on structures!

ORIGINS

Bred in Germany by Matthias Tantau Jr. in 1975. In Germany it was known as 'Anneliese Rothenberger' in honor of a great singer
