Green buds open slowly to flowers with exceptionally long petals with a golden yellow base and a touch of green on their edges that becomes more prominent in cool weather. The flowers hold their color well and last a long time on the bush or in the vase. The vigorous plants are bushy and have medium green, leathery, matte foliage. They are heat tolerant, disease resistant, and are especially suited for hot dry climates such as Southern California. The green buds gave this yellow rose gave it its name, St. Patrick.
