Friesia Rose - AKA Sunsprite
Friesia rose has a modern, unsubtle look. Mine is a standard, and I've carefully planted it separately from my other roses. Its nearest colour neighbour is bright purple (a perennial verbena) - aren't yellow and purple supposed to be good together? It's a very happy, healthy rose - a gift from a lovely ex-student of mine who was quite irrepressible and very loud - quite symbolic, really!
Yellow Friesia Roses
The rose Friesia is not listed in my Botanica's big book of roses. Eeek! Does this mean that I've totally got the name wrong? No - it also goes by the name of Sunsprite. I rather like this name for it!
The standard is still there, and I have got another shrub growing in the Allotment Garden.
