Julia Child rose bush, a beautiful butter gold, yellow floribunda rose, named for the famous French chef, Julia Child who selected this rose, personally, to bear her name.
She fell in love with the buttery yellow rose blooms and the wonderful licorice rose fragrance.
It's a rather compact rose bush, so quite easy to grow in any garden, even inn a container.
This is a very abundant and consistent blooming rose that is very hardy and disease resistant.
The foilage is medium green, glossy and healthy. I never had to treat this rose with any fungicides ever here in my Los Angeles garden.
It's a vigorous rose with a bushy, rounded growth habit. It has won many awards, including the coveted AARS award.
Here are some companion plants for roses that I really like.
Any of the blue flowering plant varieties would look great with this yellow rose.
