Rose labled 'Walk Tall'

Rose labled 'Walk Tall'

A beautiful floribunda with a sweet scent, soft yellow bud opening to a white flower, I can't find it anywhere on the www. Was it named incorrectly? Does anyone recognise it and have details of any preferences it has besides general rose parameters?

The nearest to it that I know of is Arthur Bell, a wonderful, sweetly fragrant floribunda. The buds start out deep golden yellow - much like yours - sometimes with a hint of red, and fade progressively as they open to a very pale cream, almost white.

It is a very floriferous bush; the blooms are slightly globular and a tad on the small side - compared say to a hybrid tea anyway.

The bush has a vigorous upright habit, all the branches competing closely with one another, seemingly not allowing themselves sufficient space. In my garden it grew to a height of around four feet.

I no longer grow it because it became susceptible to blackspot and I got out of the habit of spraying it.
