This rose was chosen by Julia Child herself for its rich butter-gold color and delicious anise scent. It performs excellently in all climates. It is very disease resistant and repeat-blooms until the first frost. The blooms open in lavish abundance on a bush that's a modest 3' tall and wide, with a full and rounded form. It puts on a remarkable performance in a sunny bed or border.
The Julia Child Tree Rose is available in spring. It is created by grafting the floribunda bush onto a strong, straight central cane. As a tree rose, it adds architectural interest in a landscape—either rising up over a bed or as a potted accent. Rosa 'WEKvossutono' PP18473
