|Rosa 'Golden Princess'|
'Golden Princess' blooms all summer in clusters of 1-5 and the blooms have a moderate degree of fragrance. The rose survives here in Zone 5B Kansas with some tip die-back noted both years that I have grown it, but the semi-glossy, dark green foliage is iron clad during the growing season and requires no spray for disease. Parentage was a little hard to come by, but is listed on the Elko County, Nevada, Rose website and on helpmefind as "Hawkeye Belle (seed) X (Roundelay X Country Music) (pollen). I don't know how those writers know that, so take that information with a grain of salt. Regardless, as a shrub, 'Golden Princess' is small, only about 2 feet tall and 1.5 feet wide beginning its third summer for me, so it is perfectly suited for a small garden. As the only drawback that I can see, it has large tan thorns that are a bit on the wicked side when it comes time for Spring pruning.
Give her a try for a manageable shrub rose of startling beauty. Did I mention that the best part of this rose may be the just-opening buds?
