Clear yellow flowers, perfect for small spaces

Rosa Nitty Gritty® Yellow

A low growing, disease resistant shrub rose with semi-double lemon yellow flowers for most of the summer.

A mounding, easy to care for rose with semi-double buttercup yellow flowers that bloom from spring through summer. Ideal for urban gardens where a manageable size and showy flowers count is important. Lovely in mass plantings, on a slope for erosion control, or in coastal settings, where they are tolerant of salt air.

    These roses are so hardy, they should need little pruning, but if you see some dead parts with no leaves in late spring, cut back to just above the new growth. Best rule of thumb for timeng is - "When the Forsythia bloom, it's time to prune!"
