Friesia

Friesia is certainly one of the more flamboyant of the yellow roses. Thick leathery petals, a delightful perfume, and nice dark green foliage – this one has it all!

I think this is one of the nicest scented roses that I know – although it can be very hard to pick out “just one” from the thousands of scented roses.

A bright, true yellow rose is a thing of beauty…something that breeders tried for many years to achieve. The first one wasnt produced until the introduction of Hybrid Teas.
