Julia Child rose bush consistently produces an abundance of beautiful buttery golden-yellow double roses. This floribunda rose was named after the famous French chef, Julia Child. She selected this rose, personally, to bear her name. She fell in love with the color of the blooms and the wonderful licorice rose fragrance. This shrub rose is very vigorous but compact, with a bushy rounded growth habit. Its smaller size makes it perfect for growing in any size garden. Julia Child is a very hardy rose that has demonstrated good disease resistance. The foilage is medium green, glossy and healthy. It has won many awards, including the coveted AARS award.

Fertilize Julia Child Rose in spring with a well-balanced, slow-release flower fertilizer or a natural or organic plant food. Then feed on an as needed basis during the season to keep foliage green and healthy, and to enhance bloom production. Alternatively, you can fertilize with a specialy rose food that contains a systemic insecticide for season-long insect control.

Julia Child rose can be cut back to 18 inches height in late winter or very early spring, preferably just before new growth begins to emerge, when leaf buds begin to swell. Regular deadheading throughout the blooming season will encourage heavier bloom production from spring until frost. When removing a spent bloom, trace down and make your cut about an inch above the first five-leaf branch.
