Buck Rose - Golden Unicorn

Golden Unicorn (1985)

Yellow blend shrub. The large, ovoid-long-pointed buds of cadium orange (RHSCC 23C) tinted at the edges with shrimp red (RHSCC 33C) open to double (25-30 petals), shallow-cupped, open, 4-inch blooms which are paler than the bud. The blooms are borne in clusters of 1-8 and have a sweet fragrance. The abundant, leathery foliage is dark olive green and has good tolerance to foliar disease. The thorns are tan and awl-like. The vigorous, upright, bushy, 2.4-3 ft plant is spreading and blooms from June until killing frost. The plants are winter-hardy in Iowa without protection.
