The common yellow rose found in most flower shops today are grown mainly for their ornamental uses. Yellow roses need lots of sun, 6 hours a day will make them bloom better and less susceptible to pests and disease. They should be planted in rich well-draining soil that has an organic mix such as ground bark or compost as backfill. Weekly watering is usually enough, make sure the soil is damp but not saturated. Roses usually bloom in May and June then again in fall around September. They bloom in six to eight-week cycles.
Common yellow roses are not a species they are hybrids that were developed over centuries from many different rose species from across Europe, Asia, and the Middle East. It's almost impossible to trace back every species used to create the yellow rose. There are many species of yellow roses that are natural and not created through hybridization.
