Personally selected by the award-winning master chef herself, the late Julia Child, this rose combines old-fashioned style like a David Austin rose with delicious fragrance rarely found in a free-flowering plant.  Julia Child liked the buttery gold floribunda with its strong sweet licorice and spice fragrance.  Julia Child is a 2006 AARS Winner.  
Julia Child has a rounded bushy habit, about 3 feet tall.  The bud form is pointed and opens into a full 3 ½ blooms with a petal count of 35 plus on medium-sized stem.  Foliage is super glossy leaves and has excellent disease resistance.   Julia Child was hybridized by Tom Carruth and is introduced by Weeks Roses of Upland, Calif.  With all the good qualities of Julia Child rose, I’m sure it will be as popular as the Master Chef herself.

The popular TV Master chef and author Julia Child was born hundred years ago on August 15, 1912, in Pasadena, California. She moved to France in 1948 where she developed a penchant for French cuisine.  She wrote Mastering the Art of French Cooking which I found myself referring to most often when I was entertaining as a young bride in the 70s.  I still have my dog-eared copy of the book.  She was a television icon with her popular cooking show, The French Chef.  

Roses are easy plants to grow contrary to popular belief. Why do you think Roses have been around for millions of years?  All they need are food, water and sunlight.  Just like you and me.
