Little is as lovely as the glow of a delicate yellow rose, especially one sweetly fragrant with a true rose scent. In fact, this David Austen rose, ‘Teasing Georgia,’ won an award in 2000 as the best scented variety in the Royal National Rose Society trials. The blossoms form a cup shape and will repeat flowering over the season. Hardy to Zone 5, the plant can be kept as a shrub, but it will to about 8 feet. The variety is named for German media personalities, Mr. Ulrich Meyer after his wife Georgia.
