I like Helmut Schmidt too, but as a competition rose, it did not perform too well. Also it was the first rose that died on me when I transplanted it.

Maybe I should clarify something here....it did not perform for me, and that maybe because of where I live on the coast, but having said that,.....it could perform like a beauty if it was grown further inland...

Funny you mentioned St Patrick Smile I just took a pic of one of ours this afternoon Very Happy Its a nice little rose, reminds me a bit of florist roses that are a bit cupped. The colour isn't really bright yellow but more of a light yellow with some green in it Smile

Wendy, you have a nice list of yellow roses here. One I have spoken to Warren about is called "Buccaneer", nice shape to it. Have a look at link below.

Helmut Schmidt and Mabella are the first two yellows in my garden that spring to mind as far as H.T's go....[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Mabella.[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
but there are lots of others.
Kings Ransome is an oldie [relatively]
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Another beautiful clear yellow rose that I have growing is not strictly a H.T but is usually classified as a climber and that is Golden Showers. I don't have it growing as a climber though , just a shrub growing in the garden . It gets covered in these buttery yellow flowers and can set whopping big orange hips in the autumn if you don't deadhead after the last flush. I like roses that set hips freely as they make a good food source for the local 28's , rosellas and sometimes even the redcapped parrots over winter.[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

I have just been looking through my notebook at what other yellows I have .... mmmm there's a few of them. And that's just amongst the H.T's

One of my all time favourite yellow roses though is not a H.T but rather my dependable and trusty Graham Thomas.

Its another one of our newer additions, a Pope John Paul II. So far its a really good performer, beautiful pure white exhibition style roses on long stems and to top it off, its got a fantastic scent. This one have only been in a large pot for about 6-7 months.

My Pope doesn't seem to have lot of thorns, but the repeat is swift, it always seems to be in flower and they last for ages. I did read that it is a upright rose, but mine seems to have spread out.

Same with ours.... not that many thorns and yes, it does spread. But the roses get long lovely stems and last forever in a vase.

My favourite yellow is "Rose of Wagga Wagga" but I think David Ruston told me once that his favourite is "Helmut Schmidt". Knowing David, he probably met Helmut himself in one of his world travels!

You said that Ozroz should do courses and YES thast would be fantastic. He has more knowledge on roses than all the rest of us put together.
However if you are being sarcastic and we all know that sarcasim is the lowest form of wit it has NO place on this forum.

i was actually being serious
so carole no i was genuine when i said that

' Buccaneer ' is the sort of rose I select to grow here, very healthy and a nice bloom. It's one on my 2012 wish list.

LOL. John.
The Buccaneer that I know is an "oldie" if you like ; having been released in 1952.

There have been some other notable yellow [H.T] roses [with history] released in the past .
One that my mum grew for such was "Grandmere Jenny" , [my french is ***** all these years after leaving school so please exscuse me.]

Another yellow darling that I had once before in that other life and want to obtain again , is "Golden Ophelia" .
Truly exquisite !

Yellows have to be pretty healthy to do well in Sydney.
I have Kings Ransome, Sutters Gold, Holtermans Gold, St Patrick, Helmut Schmidt, will add Buccaneer to the list this season.
Did have Freisia which also did well. It pays to be very selective, impulse buying is not the way to go.
I also have Souvenir de Claudius Pernet which is an oldie and used as a breeder in years gone by. It's considered unhealthy but it's no better or worse than the average yellows.

David, I have been sending to WA though not this season. Myrtle Rust has closed a few borders so a certificate is definately required.
Certificates are expensive and it takes me half a day to organise plus 100klm driving so one or two roses are not economical. Would suggest sending to one point in WA then dispatched to each area within the state.
