Crop 030 (Pictures of) 'Harison's Yellow', Harrison's Yellow, Harrisons Yellow or Harisons Yellow (Persian foetida Rose x Scottish spinosissima Rose ) Hybrid Old Garden Rose zone 4 thru 9, 8'x8' propagated and grown on their own roots for retail sale at the flowering shrub farm in Voorheesville, NY 12186. Double and semi-double yellow flowers bloom for several weeks in late spring to early summer, introduced by Harison in 1830. Click picture for a larger version that can be saved as wallpaper or studied more closely for inventory information (scroll down for more pictures). Want to purchase? Contact me.

The two pictures at the top should be of a closeup of the flower (top left) and a picture of cuttings (or the rose bush those rooted cuttings will come from).

The picture of the cuttings will show several different possibilities including; 1. a picture of a rose that has been stool layered in a 45 gallon pot as described near the bottom of the page, 2. rooted layers planted in a 1 gallon pot, 3. rooted layers placed in a zip lock bag to be over-wintered in the cold frame.

Additional pictures will probably be of the plants that we are taking cuttings from (or all the plants we have of this type grouped together).

We stool layer this rose by inserting a 7 gallon potted 'Harisons Yellow' into a 45 gallon pot and surrounding it with potting soil so that its insulated against heat and cold (picture above on left). I cut the plant back so that it forms this years growth near the soil line. When the new growth is as thick as a pencil I lightly wound the stem (so it shows light green) and treat the wounds with Rooting hormone, burying them in moist sand and finally covering with mulch so its easy to keep the sand moist (picture on right). A year later I should be able to get 3 or 4 rooted cuttings when I dig down to the rim of the 7 gallon pot again. We will stool layer several of these plants so that I might be able to get as many as 9 rooted plants per year (sometimes). If we root a stool layer would you like to purchase one? Contact me.


You send me your name address and telephone number along with what 2 roses in 1 gallon pots you want. If I have them available I will print your name on a "Sold To" sticker stick it on the side of the pot and place it on this shelf. If you see it here contact me right away before I sell it to someone else. When you contact me I may tell you how much to send me in a check.
