Yellow shrub rose-Canary Bird -Rosa xanthina-photos

This showy yellow shrub rose is a Canary Bird Rose-Rosa xanthina, the earliest flowering rose in our parts.
In late spring, early summer, the entire shrub is covered with a mass of delicate, scented, bright yellow flowers.

Under the spectacular clusters of flowers, a distinctive, fern-like foliage is visible, on its arching, thorny stems.

As Canary Bird Rose shrubs don't like pruning, they can grow to a height of 2.5-3 m with a slightly larger spread.
