Origin of Yellow Roses
It is said that yellow wild roses were discovered growing in the Middle East
somewhere in the 18th Century. These wild roses from Afghanistan and Southwest
Asia blossomed in colors from pale yellow to deep sulphur. When these pretty
looking yellow roses were brought back to Europe they caused a sensation. Soon
they were planted and the first attempts at hybridization with yellow roses took
place. However, The yellow rose species were not capable of resistance to a
dreadful fungal disease called blackspot. Besides, some of them emitted a very
foul scent. But with time and patience, the hybridizes began turning out some
lovely creations. Today, Yellow roses have come a long way since that first
introduction. They demonstrate tremendous vigor both as shrubs and climbers and
come in a variety of flower form from single to densely petal packed doubles in
many glorious shades of pale lemon creams, deep golds, true yellows, buff yellows,
peach yellows and coppery yellows. In addition, the rather undesirable scent
characteristics prevalent in the original species roses have been bred out and
replaced by more pleasing perfumes!
