Happy Go Lucky Grandiflora

I was wondering if anyone happened to have a Happy Go Lucky rose or has seen it in bloom? It is a yellow grandiflora and I believe it is a 2014 rose, but was available last year. From the pictures I've seen the rose itself is really appealing to me. If I get it, it is not instead of any other rose, it's just because I like it so much. Was wondering if anyone knows about it. It has Strike It Rich and Julia Child in its parentage, so it is natural for me to think it would be a good one. I don't need it, I just want it, but only if it's as good as I think it is.

I had one last year growing in a 5-gl bucket where it did reasonably well. Below is a picture of the best of the flowers that it had.

As you can see from the picture, it did not look like the advertised old garden rose flowers in its usual pictures. It made me wonder if it was the correct bush. If it is Happy Go Lucky, it did rather well. I did plant it in the ground in the fall. I will wait to see if it makes it through our rather dry and highly variable winter temperatures. I think it is worth a shot to see how well it will do for you and what yours will look like.

Thank you bustopher. I think I will go ahead and get one, hopefully it will be a good one. I saw a few of your roses on the "A" thread, they're gorgeous!
