Capture Hunks of Sunshine in Your Own Backyard!
Mine is a tree
Even if you don’t share my love for yellow roses, how can you resist the positively neon-bright golden blooms of cheery, easy-as-pie ‘Midas Touch’? So weather-resistant you’ll wonder if it’s really a rose, this hybrid tea holds its color proudly, even in hot weather, and releases a pleasant, fruity-sweet fragrance into the summer air. What a delight!
The fully double, beautifully formed 3- to 4-inch blooms are very long-lived in the vase, too. They have a nice design detail: the outermost petal tips are softly recurved, creating a point in the center of each petal. No wonder this 1992 introduction promptly won recognition from the AARS!
