Roses/JFK Rose


Hi.  My JFK rose blooms are turning yellow.  I understand it MIGHT be due to being grafted onto a rose root that was originally yellow, but I wonder if I am doing something wrong to make the white yellow.

I live in Washington state, the east side where it is sunny and warm.  This little baby gets full sun.

Thank you,


So, just to understand, you are saying that your JFK (It's a white rose ) is blooming Yellow?

Has it bloomed white before the graft?

is the new bloom off the new graft or the old

more than likely it is due to the graft

I would tell the person that grafted it.

nothing you can do otherwise to change its color
