There are a million roses on the market, but none quite like this! The first thing that sets it apart is the intense, fade-proof yellow color. The second thing is the bloom form, which resembles a buttercup as much as a rose: fluffy yellow stamens peak out from behind the curled central petals. The last thing is the exceptional disease resistance and ease of culture. No wonder this rare garden rose was chosen as a Proven Winner®!Like the rest of the acclaimed Oso Easy® series, Lemon Zest is a Proven Winners® ColorChoice, representing the true, tested cream of the crop. To become a Proven Winner®, a cultivar must display excellent health, vigor, and ease of culture in trial gardens around the world. To become a Proven Winners® ColorChoice®, a cultivar must go farther than that by displaying a new and appealing bloom color. Lemon Zest passes all these tests with flying colors, which is practically unheard-of for a yellow Rose!As its name suggests, this low-growing shrub rose is among the easiest of all to grow, thanks to superior resistance to blackspot and powdery mildew, two of the worst scourges the rose family endures! Hardy to -20 degrees F, this plant is long-lived and very vigorous. Whether you’re a seasoned gardener or just picking up your first trowel, Lemon Zest will grow and bloom profusely for you! Butterflies flock to its blooms, and the bright hips attract songbirds in winter.
