Relish the cheerful golden tones, picture-perfect form, healthy foliage, and sweet/citrus scent which earned 'Oregold' top AARS honors the year it was introduced!

Bred in Germany by Matthias Tantau Jr. in 1975, this yellow hybrid tea was fabled for its fantastic color, form, and fragrance. In Germany it was known as 'Anneliese Rothenberger' in honor of a great singer, and due to the cold climate, it only grew in a shrub form. It wasn't until Jackson and Perkins introduced this rose to the United States that it was discovered that it grows much taller in hot climates, where it becomes perfect for climbing on structures!

A child of the pink-tinged white Piccadilly® and the orange-toned 'Colour Wonder', 'Oregold' was a delightful surprise when it came out a rich, full yellow! In warmer weather the gold tones fade to a buttery white.

Boasting 25 to 40 petals, these very full, high-centered blooms are simply impeccable. Stretching up to 6 inches wide, each bloom makes an impressive specimen and a ready-made centerpiece for any cutflower arrangement. The mild, fruit/citrus scent is a great way to perfume any room!

Vigorous and disease resistant, 'Oregold' is one of the easiest roses to grow. The glossy green foliage stays lovely all the way up until hard frost. All it asks for is a sunny, well-drained spot and an annual spring pruning to remove dead or diseased wood.
