Having grown both ‘York Street Yellow’ and ‘Soeur Thérèse’, I believe these are the same rose. It’s a delicate, graceful rose with a tough constitution and great subtlety of color.

Thank you Mille Fleurs. I have added a Note to “York Street Yellow”. Hopefully others will comment as well.

This looks like a gorgeous rose, and obviously does well in cold conditions., but I am wondering how it does in heat? We are in an inland valley in California where summer temps are often above 90. Thanks!

I had Rhode Island Red in Minnesota and took it with me when we moved back to Georgia. It has done fine in the heat and humidity so far (three years). It appreciates afternoon shade, though. The bright, hot sun here tends to fry the edges of many deep red flowers.

Saw and smelled this one for the first time at a local rose show today. It was entered in the Fragrance category and deservedly won a first place ribbon! Some people said it had a spicy fragrance to them. To me it smelled like jasmine tea. Wonderful! I wanted to drink it in!

very nice colour, warm and sunny... do the flowers have any fragrance?

'Bill Reid' does have fragrance, but it is that odd smell similar to 'Suzanne' and some other hardy roses--not the fragrance of 'Golden Celebration.' (I know everyone's nose picks up rose scents a little differently, though.) The flowers are large, a very nice unfading yellow with deeper golden edges, and repeat bloom is good. 'Bill Reid' is moderately thorny and sets hips. In my climate (Twin Cities, Minnesota zone 4) it has gotten some blackspot on the lower leaves, but did not defoliate and has kept on growing and blooming.
