Anyone grow climbing "Coral Dawn" & "Royal Gold"?

bellarosa(z5/IL)April 7, 2014

I purchased these two roses from Walmart - cheapos at $5. Don't expect much really, but maybe they will surprise me! :-) I really wanted a yellow climber, but I'm not sure how hardy RG is. I had Leverkusen years ago, but I didn't care for the flowers - very pale yellow - and I prefer a true bold yellow. Any recommendations for a hardy, yellow rose?

Coral Dawn is a lovely rose, in my opinion. It's definitely on the thorny side, but it has a very nice scent, and I think the blooms are charming. I grow it because my Grandmother's name was Coral, and I learned to grow roses from her.
