BTW, Admin, why do these posts that originate on the Buy From page (Add Missing Nursery) end up on the Member Comments page? Folks who skip the comments page and go directly to Buy From will not see the nursery in question.

I have not been able to get the best out of my St. Patrick, although it seems to be improving. My plant is own-root from Roses Unlimited and is now in its 3rd growing season. It does come through winter OK but just doesn't have the vigor I would like to see. I ordered another last year on multiflora from Palatine and that plant was slow to start last year but made it through winter and is just now finding its way. So I still have hope.

This pic is from 2 days ago - my best bloom on St. Patrick yet.

The flowers on this plant are nothing short of amazing. They stay on the plant for weeks; they stay in a vase for weeks. I have a fall-planted bush purchased from a local nursery that has been blooming since I planted it (it is now December); last night we had winds of 30-40mph, and the blooms are still intact when everything else was denuded.

Help me find says that the rose is 3 to 5 feet tall but it doesn’t say how wide it is, do you have any perspective on that? I believe I’m gonna be putting this in a pot. thoughts?

The rose grows 3 to 4 feet tall and wide, according to the patent.

A uniquely high quality yellow hybrid tea. While most large yellow HTs open and drop their petals too quickly in hot weather, St Patrick is extraordinarily long lasting, and opens slowly and holds its most attractive high center form forever...a quality that cannot be over appreciated if you live in the South. It also shows its most unique characteristics...a chartreuse green edge, a pink center when weather is warm. When cut inside, the color actually turns a deeper, almost golden yellow. Once in a while you’ll get a completely chartreuse green bloom. A rose with many interesting variations, all of them very attractive. The bloom also retains good size and petal count in heat. It grows with excellent vigor and disease resistance. In my opinion, easily the best yellow HT or grandiflora.

Honestly, I think my St. Patrick is going to get the "Mommie Dearest" treatment this spring. I bought it because it has all these qualities that we seek in roses, but it just leaves me totally cold. It's like buying a Camry. Great qualities on paper, but it lacks emotion. I still recommend it to everyone that wants a great, yellow rose...or just an easy rose in general.
