    Furling the petals this year which is unusal, detracts a little. One I like though.

    Still very handsome the name so unique it's try say something what is that mean of "Goodbye Englands Rose 'Michelle" must be something related to the good or bad memories to the person who created this wonderful hybrid.

    Without any great knowledge, I think it refers to Princess Diana of England & her passing.
    The Michelle is a family member of the original flowerer of his plant.

    Very beautiful bloom. I love yellow flowers. They're so cheerful and brighten up grey autumn days (though here in Barcelona we don't have many of these).
