Hi Margaret.  I have a Harison's yellow rose as well.  It has been in my
family since I can remember.  My father even made me a corsage for the
grade six commencement ceremony from it.

Be careful.  I would leave four or five of the healthier canes and cut
back the rest if you feel you do not want to thin it gradually.  I cut
one of mine back right down and almost lost it.  I think it is still in
recovery after three years.

They are a beautiful rose :)
