I wish I knew, Rob - I'd go and buy one!
I have no idea, but I love yellow roses. It looks beautiful growing where it is.
It's gorgeous. Hope you find out the name of it. What a marvelous display against the stone. Are you getting rain?Cameron(Just back from Washington DC/Alexandria VA where we spent the last 4 days... without a computer, but with a camera)
Oooh, she is a beauty, especially in the last closeup shot. Wish I could help you on her name, sorry. I love to see your pictures of mature plants, since everything in my yard is still so young.
It is lovely. Roses are hard to identify because there are so many. How often does it bloom (does it repeat?)
Looks a bit like Allgold Rob. If you get stuck Rob, try:http://forums.gardenweb.com/forums/load/rosesname/msg0516381017080.htmlalways been helpful to me.orhttp://www.justourpictures.com/http://www.rogersroses.com/
Hi Phoenix and CatherineCameron, storms last night and bursts of heavy rain today. Settled from tomorrow onwards.VW hi, I guess your spring being later always makes a difference.Phillip hi, yes it repeatsHermes, cheers, I'll check them out.
'Allgold' came to my mind too Rob but am not sure. The Peter Beales website offers the facility to search for roses by height and colour. Is it fragrant ? What a beautiful rose to inherit.
Hi Rob, sorry, no ID here either, but yellow roses are my favorites, hard to find really good ones like yours. Lucky you to be the steward of such a one. :-)Frances
very, very pretty! I don't know much about roses, but I went to the antique rose emporium website and poked around, and thought that this rose, Safrano, might be it: http://www.ph-rose-gardens.com/00402.htmThis site has a much more detailed description, and it seems to match up really well from the pictuers, shrub size and blooming time, what do you think? Or it could be Isabella Sprunt, which is a sport of that and is more yellow.
Hi Anna, Frances and Jen.I shall try out all the options and thanks, it's appreciated!It could be a little known French variety or even something by Meilland, still, it that remains nameless is a stunner!
Hi RobLovely photos of a delightful rose. Sorry no name suggestions. I don't seem to have any yellow roses not intentionally though.It took me a long time to name a cutting from a neighbour that turned out to be Mselle Cecille Bruner which in fact is so different than many roses. I eventually tracked it down at Mottisfont Abbey although I have found it elsewhere since. It is a lot easier to identify in life than on a photo so good luck, it is a beauty.
Rob I hope you get an ID for your rose. It's certainly a beauty, and looks wonderful with the Cosmos and Verbena.
Hi Rob - looks like an old but very pretty yellow rose to me!Thanks for your tip about the BBC Garden Illustrated magazine - what a great read. I'm inspired! I'm also about to order some ginger :)Hope your weather is better than ours - it's been chucking it down all day and I'm considering putting the heating on for a bit - how grim is that? Mind you, it's the bank holiday this weekend so I shouldn't expect anything else really!
The only yellow rose I know is Golden Showers. It's a climber too. Maybe? It's sure a beautiful old rose huh? love the wall it's growing on.
What a beauty and I cannot help you name it either. It is so lovely there against the color of your barn... beautiful photos.
Not only is it beautiful, but the foliage is so healthy. Donna
I wish I knew~ I want one! Beautiful yellow rose, and beautiful captures of it! Very nice gardening blog you have also, found you're link at Mother Natures'Garden blog.Have a beautiful weekend!Cat
It's official. I'm tagging you for a Meme Award!Do drop by to pick it up, Cheers, Alice
simply beautifully captured shot...lovely!
Is it perhaps Buff Beauty? Buff Beauty might be 'flatter' when fully opened, but the colour and growth could well be it. It is one of the great survivors of earlier roses, and marvelously scented. I have posted on it at mooseyscountrygarden.com, (in about Nov 2008 as Jack Two) where you can do a site search and compare pictures.PS: Great to have discovered your blog!regards - Jack Holloway
I think it is Golden Showers, myself.
I also vote for "Golden Showers"
Your photography is absolutely gorgeous!! I don't have a clue about your rose but it's beautiful.Have a great day!!
I am almost sure it is Golden Showers - I have 3 myself. It was the first climbing rose to when rose of the year by the ARS in 1955.
Could it be Sutters Gold?
