Bill Reid yellow shrub rose

I brought home two Bill Reid shrub roses from the Friends School Plant sale this past weekend. It’s listed as a new Canadian Artist Series hardy rose. It’s a cross between Morden Sunrise and Golden Celebration.

The plants I took home is just about ready to bloom. One will be planted in the yard while the spare will go into a pot.

I thought about crossing it with R. laxa and R. acucularis. When John Davis is blooming I would try it as well.

Anyone growing this one yet.

I was tempted by it. I really liked Morden Sunrise, and would still have it if not for it being one of the biggest black spot magnets in my backyard. I’m curious to hear how BR holds up disease wise.
