One of the earliest roses to flower, the Rosa Xanthina Var. Spontanea ‘Canary Bird’ bears a mass of bright, canary-yellow, small flowers, which are loosely formed with single petals around the stamen. Flowering once, early in the season, allows for the later formation of maroon hips, set amongst the thorny stems. This rose will spread to form a large shrub.

Please note, our roses are available to purchase all year round, so depending on the time of year your rose may either arrive in bloom or have been pruned or deadheaded appropriately for the season.


Wonderful as a hedge or in a border, the yellow flowers, scented with an attractive light, fruity fragrance, attract bees and other pollinators. Rosa Canary Bird is a recipient of the RHS AGM (Award of Garden Merit), for all round excellence in the garden.
