|An elderly friend gave me this shrub rose which, years ago, could be found growing in old homestead gardens in the area. Over the last few years, I have seen much less of this thorny, yet beautiful rose. Is this Harrison's Gold?
|Is it blooming now (September)? Harrison's Gold has only one flush of blooms in the spring.|
|A photo of the rose was taken in May. So does it finally have a name? Appreciate your help.|
|It sure looks like it. Practically speaking, there is only one yellow shrub rose from the first half of the last century (or earlier) in the USA. I'd say with 99% surety that it is Harrison's Yellow (actually, there is no Harrison's Gold).|
|It's Harison's Yellow (only one "r"), bred by George Folliott Harison.|
|Thank you. Heirloom flowers are my gardening focus so I'm happy to have this beautiful rose.|
