Stunning Gold Medal® is a Grandiflora Rose with exceptional color and long-lasting blooms. Featuring hints of copper-orange shading at first bloom, Gold Medal® Rose (Rosa 'Aroyqueli') is a sight to see! Maturing into a stunning yellow-gold hue, this remarkable Rose is sure to become one of your favorite plantings this summer.

The radiant 6-inch blossoms are offset by dark green, elegantly-toothed foliage. The blooms tend to appear in small clusters throughout the season, and you'll adore the sweet, spicy-fruit scent of each blossom. It has an upright, bushy habit and is semi-thornless so you won't have to worry about being pricked when gardening.

Gold Medal® is a hardy Grandiflora Rose throughout USDA planting zones 5 to 9 and is heat tolerant and disease resistant to many common Rose issues! Growing 3-6 feet in height and 3-4 feet in width, when this Rose is covered in those gleaming golden blooms, it will look like a beacon attracting all the attention to your landscape!

Pollinators and butterflies will arrive in droves to check out the stunning blooms, and your garden beds and borders will just shine!

Rose makes a great choice for your cut flower garden or cottage border! The Gold Medal® Rose also makes a great ornamental shrub for your landscape as a focal point among mixed shrub hedges and backdrop plantings. This Rose blooms continually from late spring into fall, making it a productive choice that earns its keep among its counterparts and provides you with armloads of cut flower blooms for bouquets!

#ProPlantTips for Care:

What does this easy-going Rose need to be a winner in your landscape? Well, Grandiflora Roses need full sun locations, plus good air circulation and morning sun to do their best. Provide consistent moisture and only water at the root zone, regularly throughout the heat of summer. Plant in enriched, highly organic, and fertile soil that is well-drained and well-mulched to hold in moisture.

Site selection is important for Roses, and we always recommend Nature Hills Root Booster when planting to get your Roses off to the best start. Add a 3 to 4-inch layer of mulch over the root system, and plan to reapply in spring. Over time, the mulch will break down to improve your soil!

Rose Bush FAQs

Where Is The Best Place To Plant Rose Bushes?

Roses need a protected location and prefer full sun and favor the drying power of the morning sun and flower best in at least 6 hours of direct sunlight a day. Choose a location in good, enriched soil that drains well and has good air circulation.

What Is The Best Month to Plant Roses?

You can plant Roses any time if you can provide enough consistent moisture and attention. While there is not a specific month that is best, generally because it changes with temperatures, climate and growing zone. However, the easiest times of the year to get Rose bushes established in your landscape are in spring after the last frost date, and in fall about 4-6 weeks before the first frost.

Do Roses Come Back Every Year?

Rose bushes are deciduous woody perennial shrubs and will return bigger and better each year.
