Deep Yellow Rose
'Anthony Meilland' Floribunda Rose
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.

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.
