Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
The golden-flowered floribunda rose 'Allgold' boasts large flowers and a compact shrubby habit. It is an older variety that was first introduced in 1958 and bred in England by the amateur rose breeder Edward Burton LeGrice.
This hardy rose is a woody deciduous shrub with stems lined with sharp woody thorns. It has a very compact bushy habit, compound leaves that are glossy and dark to medium green and is everblooming. Its fully double flowers are large, golden yellow, lightly fragrant, and as they age they do not fade. It is a repeat bloomer that produces roses throughout summer.
Roses prefer full to partial sun, moderate temperatures and perfectly drained, slightly acid soil with average to good fertility. They grow best in places with slightly dry climates, because such climates disfavor the fungal diseases that plague them. For this reason, it is important to maintain good airflow within and between planted roses through good planting and pruning practices which will dissuade fungal attacks. Roses are rife with pest and disease problems. In fact, there are many common pests and diseases that can harm them. Fortunately, modern cultivars like 'Allgold' are bred to be disease resistant.
Roses are a landscape must—particularly compact cultivars like 'Allgold.' Its flowers are also exceptional for cutting.
