Persian Yellow

(Rosa foetida persiana) The double pure yellow cousin of Austrian Copper is highly prized for many of the same qualities. The very cold-tolerant shrubby plant gives an unbelievable display of eye-popping yellow color. The double flower form was quite a rare treasure in its day. Hardy. Does best in harsher climates. Only available budded.
