Compact double yellow rose

Does anyone grow Tequila Gold or Yellow Floor Show? I don't want a miniature rose, just a smaller, compact landscape rose. Do you recommend a different plant? It must be double and rebloom or continual bloomer.

I would love to see it in your yard.
Thanks

I had her - three to be exact- at my old house and will definitely get more if her. I love, love, love that rose! What I want is something just like that, only shorter. It would be along side a drive way.

And gorgeous picture.

Try 'The Poet.' I'm really impressed with it--no blackspot, blooms fairly continuously, hardly fades, and stays small. I got mine from Roses Unlimited.

Solero. Also called Solero Vigorosa.

Forgive me for not knowing what " double " means , I know for sure about single roses are ... But how about sunrise vigorousa ? I just bought it but it gets great reviews for rebloom , short in size and great health . Looking forward to seeing how it does near my bird bath .

Another vote for Solero Vigoroso. First year own root plant, which is forced to compete with annuals, but it has been very floriferous and has zero disease problem. I think that it is an ADR winner.

Image of Solero Vigoroso - it grows about 2.5 feet tall and spread is about 3 feet.

Beautiful! It has really nice foliage as well! I am in zone 8, maybe even 8b. Would it be evergreen or semi evergreen in this area? I'll look into this and the suggestion for The Poet. Thank you!

Yes it does quite well in zone 8b which is were I grow roses.
