Ornamental Features

Molineux Rose is draped in stunning lightly-scented yellow flowers with gold overtones at the ends of the branches from late spring to late summer. The flowers are excellent for cutting. It has forest green deciduous foliage. The oval compound leaves turn yellow in fall.

Planting & Growing

Molineux Rose will grow to be about 3 feet tall at maturity, with a spread of 24 inches. It tends to fill out right to the ground and therefore doesn't necessarily require facer plants in front. It grows at a fast rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for approximately 20 years.

This shrub 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 highly tolerant of urban pollution and will even thrive in inner city environments. This particular variety is an interspecific hybrid.
