The Gold Medal rose bush is a beautiful yellow hybrid tea grandilfora rose and a gold medal winning rose.
'Gold Medal' is the first fine yellow rose that grows best in warmer climates, it's knoen as the hot climate rose.
It was introduced by Christenson in 1982. A perfect rose for gardener's who love yellow roses.
The growth habit is upright and tall, since it's a grandiflora rose
It's beautiful large rose blooms are golden yellow flushed with just a hint of orange.
The petal count is 30-35, and the blooms are almost 5 inches in diameter. A perfect exhibition rose form.
I love the light fruity fragrance when smellin this rose. I garden in Los Angeles, which is a perfect place to grow this rose.
I want you to know that the flower colors deepens in moderate climate zones.
Another thing I really like about rosa Gold Medal is that the flowers are weatherproof and open slowly thus lasting longer.
Like I mentioned earlier, it grows best in warm and hot climates, and is very much at home in California, where it was first bred.
It's also a great rose for cutting and looks fabulous in an arrangement with purple roses.
The plant is tall and grows to well above average height, so plant it toward the back of the border.
Growing zones are 5-10.
