A new hybrid by Singing Tree Gardens Nursery that is a cross between R. decorum x R. 'Nelda Peach'. Butter yellow large flowers that smell like root beer, thus the name, come out in late May on a fantastic foliage plant. A great plant that grows quite large and will be noticed by visitors, especially when they smell the flowers. We love it when we ask our customers to smell the flowers on this plant and do they think they they smell like root beer. They become wide eyed and smiling then say "they sure do!" Will make a good screening plant for privacy, and is hardy to zone 7.
