Rosa 'Arthur Bell' (syn. 'T11 AgCan') is a rose cultivar, bred by Sam McGredy IV in Northern Ireland in 1956. It is a cross between 'Cläre Grammerstorf' and 'Piccadilly', and is classed as a modern floribunda rose.
'Arthur Bell' forms compact deciduous shrub of upright bushy growth to 1 m (3 ft) height with repeat-flowering properties. In summer it bears clusters of very fragrant, bright yellow flowers fading to pale yellow. They reach an average diameter of 3 inches (7.6 cm) and have up to 25 petals.
It was named for the Scotch whiskey maker.
There is also a climbing sport, which was discovered by Pearce in 1978 and introduced as 'Arthur Bell, Cl.'. In 2001, the sport was granted the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit.
