Rose of the Week: Strike It Rich

(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.  Clicking a second time will make it full-sized.)

Strike It Rich was one of the first roses we planted in our ‘big’ rose bed.  It doesn’t have much of a fragrance, but it does have this beautiful golden yellow color that gives this rose its name.  We always look forward to seeing this rose in bloom throughout the summer.
