What’s in a name? At first I was confused. I could only find Goldmarie 84 in my rose book which claimed that it was synonymous with Goldmarie BUT so did the label for my Goldmarie 82. I then read that Goldmarie was bred in 1982 and released in 1984 and the registered name is Goldmarie 82.
Goldmarie 82 is a Floribunda rose. It was introduced by Kordes in 1984. It flowers in large clusters.
Goldmarie 82 is supposed to be canary yellow with a touch of red on the edges, though there is virtually no touch on mine. You can see a bit of red on the underside of the bottom petal in the photo below. I picked these flowers on a very hot day so I am thinking maybe in spring or late autumn when the days are cooler, there may be more of a red tinge but I don’t remember seeing any, just perfect hot canary yellow.
I have a bed of pink roses and one of apricot, how this beauty made it into my apricot bed, I don’t know, but I don’t regret it.
My bush is very healthy. It has attractive, glossy, disease resistant foliage. It is about a metre tall. I would highly recommend this rose. The colour is startling, the bush is compact and the foliage abundant.
Thanks Sponge- I think every rose is beautiful. It is hard to choose one over the other.
