Lemon Meringue Rose

Fact sheet: Lemon Meringue Rose


This tall climbing light yellow shrub rose was bred by William J. Radler in 2003. It grows to a height of 6-7 feet and has large, glossy, dark green foliage. The light yellow flowers have a strong, fruity, spicy fragrance and bloom thoughout the growing season. Remove spent blooms to encourage new ones. In the spring, remove old canes and dead or diseased wood and cut back any canes that cross each other. In warm climates, cut back remaining canes about one third. Hardy in USDA zones 6b through 9b, this rose can be used for cut flowers, a hedge, or as a shrub in your garden.
