Yellow Tree Rose

We purchased a yellow tree rose from Costco this spring, and the plant has been providing amber-hued dividends all summer. At first I thought I killed the grafted plant, as I did not even see leaves until early June, but the rose tree continues to bloom with unexpected vigor.

The plant also seems more resistant to some of the rose-related diseases and pests in the area, though admittedly some of these rose problems might need a year or two to manifest themselves. I have also been hesitant to prune the plant at this early stage, so the tree looks a bit unruly at the moment, but the yellow blossoms have been just short of spectacular.
