Buck Rose - Gee Whiz

Gee Whiz (1984)

Yellow blend shrub. The ovoid-pointed buds of barium yellow (RHSCC 10A) tinted vermilion (RHSCC 41B) open to double (20-30 petals, shallow-cupped, 3-4 inch blooms of barium yellow heavily streaked and freckled with vermilion. The blooms are borne in clusters of 1-10 and have a sweet fragrance. The medium-sized, leathery, dark olive green foliage is tinted with copper when young. The thorns are brown and needle-like. The low, bushy, 2.5-3 ft plant is freely branching and blooms freely from June until killing frost. The plants are winter-hardy in Iowa without protection.
