2) Is not a rose, but a shrub that I saw recently in sarasota and would like to use in my yard as a hedge.
Finally, I need advice on what may be wrong with a rose in my yard. It is a modern rose, Floribunda Our Lady of Guadalupe. In the last week, it has gone from glossy dark green foliage to entirely yellow and defoliating. It was planted last spring and had been doing so well in the garden. All the roses around it seem to be just fine, no sign of any problems. I am baffled.

Poor Our Lady of Guadalupe.
Notice the Autumn Damask (own root vs the grafted Our Lady) is doing just fine.
Any help you could offer would be of great assistance.
OLOG has left the building, and as my post on GW can attest, I am still baffled as to the sudden failure, especially since the roots seem to be okay. http://forums2.gardenweb.com/forums/load/rosesant/msg0813413931122.html?13
