Enticing Yellow Shrub Roses
by Charlie Nardozzi
Yellow is a coveted color in roses, especially in shrub roses, with their carefree growth habit and ever-blooming nature. Now gardeners have two new choices from a series of roses called Easy Elegance introduced by award-winning rose breeder Ping Lim at Bailey Nurseries.
Tahitian Moon (Rosa BALoon) features fully double, yellow blossoms on an 8-foot-tall bush adorned with dark, glossy foliage. This shrub can be trained as a climber in warm regions. Yellow Submarine (Rosa BAline) has clusters of lemon-yellow blossoms that age to creamy white on a 2- to 4-foot-tall shrub. Both shrubs are disease resistant and hardy to USDA zone 4.
