So happy to get this rose!
from TX wrote (September 15, 2016):
I am very happy to be able to order this rose as they are similar to ones growing on my childhood home in South Dakota. They have been unavailable for the past few years that I've tried to order them. Now, I just hope they grow and flourish!
Great Container Rose

Earlier I wrote a review and gave it 4 stars. Today I am giving it 5 stars. It survived 6 days and nights of below freezing weather when a major ice storm hit Lamar County, northeast Texas. I covered it on my deck and it was in complete darkness all the time. I am very happy with my Yellow Ribbon Rose in it's rusty old container.
My Kind of Rose

I gave it 4 stars because I am waiting to see how it winters over here in northeast TX. Next spring I hope to give it a 5. It looks great spilling over it's rusty metal container. It has bloomed continuous with regular watering, feeding, & deadheading.
Love info

The Jackson and Perkins Difference

Grown in California by the World’s Best Rose Professionals

World's Finest Roses

California provides one of the finest rose-growing environments in the world. All of our roses are grown in soil that is tested and analyzed to ensure they are grown with the exact level of essential nutrients needed. The proper amounts of fertilizer, water, and nutrients are then added to the roses during their active growth cycle by our experienced rose growers.

Each rose is hand selected and prepared by seasoned professional rose growers. Our experienced growers are continually evaluating and testing the roses in the fields to ensure maximum rose health.

All of this tender loving care under the generous California sun results in a young but vigorously growing rose plant with a root system that is ready for fast blooming in your rose garden.

Exclusive and Superior Rose Breeding Process

Jackson and Perkins exclusive rose varieties have been bred to exhibit the most preferred rose characteristics for rose gardeners. It takes many years to develop a single rose variety, and our rose breeders have painstakingly evaluated, tested, and grown superior new genetic features into these new rose varieties for introduction.

The healthy rose plant canes are now hand groomed for the customers' garden presentation. The roses are then harvested at the perfect time in preparation for shipping and customer planting. All of these steps, from rose research, planting, budding, growing, harvesting and storing, are essential to ensure you receive a healthy, vigorous Jackson & Perkins rose plant, the WORLD’S FINEST ROSE.

What to Expect
Container roses should typically be planted in late spring and fall. They’re easy to plant (all you need is a trowel), and they provide instant gratification, as they aren’t dormant and will have buds within a few short weeks, if they don’t when they arrive. They’re also perfect for transplanting into containers and make an attractive gift.

Container roses are usually nicely leafed out, and may even have flowers on them, which is a great way for you to know when you purchase them what they’re going to look and smell like.

Container-Grown Rose Instructions
  • When your roses arrive, water them thoroughly.
  • Choose a well-drained location that recieves at least 4 to 6 hours of direct sun each day. Dig a hole at least twice the size of the rootball. Mix the native soil with compost or other organic material and add superphosphates.
  • Gently loosen the rootball, place it into the hole so that the bud union sits 1 to 2 inches below soil level, and fill the hole with the remaining soil.
  • Water thoroughly, then mulch heavily around the base for winter protection. Your roses will arrive lightly pruned, so it is not imperative that you do any additional pruning before winter.
