Yellow 'St Patrick' Rose Bushes for Sale Online
Some like it hot! And so do some roses, such as the Saint Patrick Hybrid Tea Rose. A fan of summer heat, this sun-bathing beauty features delicate rose blooms of yellows, ranging from golden yellow in cooler weather to bright chartreuse in hot climates. Bred from an unlikely combination by amateur horticulturalist Frank Strickland, the yellow Saint Patrick Hybrid Tea Rose won him many awards, including the coveted All American Rose award in 1996.
Saint Patrick rose bushes are resilient and sturdy specimens with great strong stems, perfect for cut-flower bouquets. The fully double blooms begin to unfold slowly from yellow-green buds in late spring, and they stay in bloom all through the summer heat. Plant a Saint Patrick Rose Shrub in your garden for a wee bit of Irish gold all summer long.
