Folksinger Rose was bred by Dr. Griffith J. Buck in 1985 in the United States. It is a shrub rose with yellow flowers flushed with dark apricot-peach tones. Blooms are sweetly fragrant and double, born in small and large clusters. Foliage is dark red, leathery and glossy.
The Folksinger Rose is covered in stunning fragrant buttery yellow flowers with yellow eyes and peach centers at the ends of the stems from late spring to late summer. The flowers are excellent for cutting. It has green foliage throughout the season. The oval compound leaves do not develop any appreciable fall color and the fruit is not ornamentally significant.
This rose requires occasional maintenance and upkeep, and is best pruned in late winter once the threat of extreme cold has passed. It is a good choice for attracting bees to your yard. It will grow to be about 5 feet tall at maturity, with a spread of 4 feet. Its foliage tends to remain dense right to the ground, not requiring facer plants in front. It grows at a medium rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for approximately 20 years.
This rose should only be grown in full sunlight. It does best in average to evenly moist conditions, but will not tolerate standing water. It is not particular as to soil type or pH. It is somewhat tolerant of urban pollution.
