Fortune's Double Yellow

Fortune's Double Yellow to the left of Old Blush climber. The purple growing below is a native wildflower 'Spiderwort'.

This spring bloomer is not cold tolerant - best in USDA Zones 8-9.

"Seen up close the double flowers are a rich apricot-yellow with a blush of rose or crimson on the outer petals." (From the Antique Rose Emporium website.)
