Doris Day

Inspired by big screen and singing legend, 'America's Sweetheart' Doris Day, this lovely yellow rose beautifully personifies this joyful, charming and amazingly talented icon. What makes this rose special is it originated from the same cross that produced the varieties Sparkle & Shine and Jump for Joy. These three rose sisters are different but they share the same super-floriferous attributes. Doris Day's blooms are full of sunshine and will sweeten up your garden with their fruity and sweet spice aroma. The old-fashioned blooms are produced in beautiful rounded clusters on vigorous stems. You get to enjoy the gold yellow coloration until the petals drop.
