The Buttery Yellow Rose

I could never name my favorite rose, but if I had to name my top ten, Graham Thomas would definitely be in the list. Please indulge me as I have to post a picture of this beauty from the garden this year. Planted behind some Jerusalem sage, the contrasting gray foliage is nice, but the neon yellow blooms of the sage clash with my pet rose and so will need to be moved in the fall.

Sheila, I agree! This beautiful yellow rose is outstanding. Yellow is one of my favorite colors in the garden.

Beautiful photo of a superb rose. Graham Thomas is definitely one of David Austin's finest roses.

I have one of those too. Haven't we all.

This note on David Austen's website: Graham Thomas has been voted the World’s Favourite Rose by the World Federation of Rose Societies which represents over 100,000 rose lovers in 41 member countries. The award was announced at the 2009 World Rose Convention in Vancouver, when the rose was inducted into the society’s Rose Hall of Fame.

Sheila, This lovely rose is a 'must have'. Oh, and I see I am not the only one who has to move plants because the colors don't work together. Pam x
