Reviewed by:

Plant old-fashioned roses in the gardens of your old-fashioned home. This rose is known by the name "Australian Copper" and it has a yellow and orange flower.

According to the nursery in Maine that propagates this plant, it first appeared in Europe in the 14th Century, courtesy of the Crusaders, and was brought to the colonies in the 18th century.

Shipped potted and leafed out, it will arrive at your home ready for planting.
