Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
ROSA 'Harison's Yellow'
Harison's Yellow Shrub Rose, Pioneer Rose, Shrub Rose, Yellow Rose of Texas
An antique cultivar that remains popular nearly 200 years following its introduction, this hybrid of Rosa foetida is cherished for its sunny late-spring blooms and its tough constitution.
The arching, spiny, brown stems of this rock-hardy, medium to large deciduous shrub are lined with bright green, compound leaves. Plants spread by suckers to form thickets. The bright yellow, saucer-shaped, semi-double flowers appear in abundance for several weeks in spring. The blooms cast a strong fruity fragrance. Showy deep red "hips" follow the flowers. Plants may rebloom in fall in mild climates.
Roses prefer full to partial sun, moderate temperatures and perfectly drained, slightly acid soil with average to good fertility. Many rose cultivars are rife with pest and disease problems. They are particularly prone to foliar fungal diseases and thus benefit from good air circulation. Fortunately, 'Harison's Yellow' is relatively disease-resistant, and is also renowned for its tolerance of cold and drought. Use this antique shrub rose in mixed borders and hedges.
