Compassion produces the most beautiful, large, fully double, 4” blooms in a lovely shade of apricot, copper and gold. The flowers are profuse and cascade down this continually blooming Climber. Compassion can be grown as a Shrub if preferred. We love her for her marvelous honey and peach fragrance and we aren’t alone! Compassion is one of the RNRS winners of the Edland Medal for fragrance. She is an excellent choice for the cutting garden.

Not bad!

She was planted last year and put out nice growth this spring. However, a very wet spring brought on black spot, which she was susceptible to. Her canes are not overly strong, but that could just be due to her young age or the way I cut back in the spring. She has not been a prolific bloomer. This month has been extremely hot for Zone 8b in Salem, OR and blooming has not been great. Hopefully, she will improve still this year and next year will see better production. I do hope so, as you can see, she has a lovely bloom, but fragrance is light.

Dead

This one gave one bloom and was starting to die in a partially shade spot in 8b so the next year I moved it to a full sun spot . Then ( last year ) it remained short but gave a bunch of blooms . Then this year it looked ok in spring but then just died 😪

A stunning performer

I’ve had this rose for 8 years and while it took off beautifully as soon as planted, in the last several years it’s become the star of my late spring garden. I love the color that goes from dark pink buds to pale coral-pink flowers with a yellow center when fully open. In my recently reclassified zone 7A garden, with my method of benign neglect, it has canes that easily cover the 7’ foot arch nearby. In late May it is covered with fragrant flowers. Once they fade, I can expect intermittent blooms for the rest of summer. Give this rose a nice spot and fasten your seatbelt.

Compassion Rose

Arrived with green healthy defoliated canes per usual. Planted in ground during a bad heat spell (I know, not smart!) here in Zone 8B Central Texas end of October BUT...end of Dec 2023 gorgeous new growth, foliage, and 2 huge blooms. Blooms easily 5 inches across, a gorgeous bright pinkish gold color and the scent...perfection..strong, sweet, floral! 1 barely opened bloom can be smelled several feet away. Stunning.

2nd year stunner

Compassion gave me a few blooms first year, but exploded and shot up a huge cane to near six feet so far in her second year! I may have to move her in years to come. Color shifts beautifully and her scent is heavenly!
