Hybrid Tea - Yellow-gold shaded green
Some like it hot…and this is one! The luck of the Irish may have finally brought a super slow-opening yellow rose that likes the heat. This saintly yellow can pick up a touch of gold in cool weather, but he’ll be wearin’ the green when the temps turn up. Loads of novel chartreuse-shaded buds spiral open to yellow-gold flowers of amazing stamina. Grey-green foliage completes the picture. St. Patrick is a Top 5 Exhibition Hybrid Teas for 2001 and 2002.
