New rose: DA 'Buttercup'

First rather lax flower. I think it will need support this year. Love it!

'Summer song' is exactly the same.

Oh, I'd love to try that, such a stunning colour. Do you have one, Meadow? 'Buttercup' is in a pot at the moment.

I bought Summer song from David Austin 6 years ago. It has been a disappointment sadly....the stems are leggy, they droop and never support themselves...A DA representative advised me to prune more severely but this didn't work....I agree the colour is stunning. The description is strong, upright growth I'm still waiting Ange.

Oh, I'm sorry to hear that, Meadow. As you know, I have reservations often, too. I'll cross that off! This one, bare root last winter, has pushed out 3 gorgeous orange/gold flowers so far. I'll give it a couple of years to see if the growth strengthens.

I agree,give it a couple of years...bare rooted may make a difference...mine was potted.Let us know how it goes.
