Golden Celebration is a very popular and beautiful David Austin Rose. Lovely full flower form. It sure does like to grow large, much too large for my small garden. I had Golden Celebration for at least two years and did admire the flowers, but I had to dig it up as it just insisted on growing too large. I replaced Golden Celebration with the Jackson & Perkins rose Golden Zest.
