General Description

The golden shrub rose Golden Celebration® is a patented selection that boasts large flowers and a vigorous shrubby habit. It is a David Austin Rose that was first introduced in 1992 and is the product of a cross between Rosa Charles Austin and Rosa Abraham Darby.

This hardy rose is a woody deciduous shrub with stems lined with sharp woody thorns. It has a bushy habit, compound leaves that are glossy and dark to medium green and is everblooming. Its fully double flowers are large, golden yellow and very fragrant. It blooms all summer and the fruit is a berry-like hip, which provides food to wildlife.

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, new cultivars are bred to be disease resistant. Golden Celebration® is resistant to mildew and blackspot.

Roses are a landscape must—particularly newer disease resistant everblooming cultivars like Golden Celebration®.
