The Vintage Rosery
Unless otherwise noted, all photographs were taken of the roses in our gardens located in Needville, Texas (zone 8b.)
The deep yellow shrub Nacogdoches is upright and bushy. With most antique yellow roses having a lighter yellow, Nacogdoches is a real knockout. Its new leaves have a shade of bronze, then turn dark green. There is a light and spicy frangrance. With full sun, it reaches 4' to 5' in height and a 3' width. It is a repeat bloomer from spring until frost and is supposed to be quite disease resistant.
Nacogdoches is now being tested for hardiness through the A&M EarthKind program. It is too early to determine if it is going to be accepted.
Nacogdoches was named after the first town in Texas.
