Francis Copple (Bush Rose)
Modern Shrub. A lovely semi-double rose of coppery yellow, paling to primrose yellow as the flower ages. Very free flowers throughout the summer. Fragrant. Foliage large and glossy. A true delight planted in small groups or even as short hedge. If the late summer flowers are not deadheaded it will produce a good crop of orange oval hips. Named for a Metropolitan Policeman who loved roses.
