'Golden Celebration' David Austin English Rose

 David Austin English Roses shine this summer in my zone 7b garden. In early Spring, Golden Celebration produces a multitude of blooms. As the summer heats up, we see a good repeat of blooms throughout the season. We have an old park bench sitting in front of these shrubs and they are now spilling over onto the bench. Of all the Austins we have growing in our garden, this is my favorite Not only for its bloom power, but also for its form and beautiful color…

    I agree ‘Golden Celebration’ is a wonderful rose for warm climates. Since I seem now to get into yellow roses, which I wasn’t at all for many years, I may consider to get this one for my own garden, too. Thanks for reminding me of this beauty with your post.

    I love Golden Celebration for flower form and fragrance, but I don’t love it for lack of rebloom and blackspot :). Still, I will keep mine, it is gorgeous in spring.
