Deep Yellow Rose


'Anthony Meilland' Floribunda Rose
Synonyms: MEIbaltaz

This rose had one of the deepest yellow colors I have seen. The full on flower didn’t fade at all it was still deep yellow. The bush itself was a little small but the foliage was clean. My only complaint was the lack of fragrance. A rose that looks this good should have a nice smell but I didn’t smell anything even though I was pretty close to the flowers.

Breeder: Meilland International
Introduction: Star Roses, 1994
Petal Count: 26-40
Fragrance: Mild to none
Parentage: Seed: Sunblest × MEIlenangal
Pollen: Spek's Yellow


There seems to be a preponderance of yellow flowers posted on this site lately. It just has been a happy accident. I have been enjoying the yellow flowers more than usual.

Chris, that is certainly a pure yellow rose. Bummer on the lack of fragrance. Meilland Roses are supposed to be easy care....true?

Janet,

They are supposed to be easy care. The Fairy rose does get some disease around here.
