Fast grower with adorably beautiful blooms

I planted this beauty in zone 5a in mid May with barely any leaves. Now, in late June, it has two gorgeous two-toned blooms and is LOADED with buds. It is by far the fastest grower of the five Heirloom roses I planted. The size, shape, and color of the blooms are lovely and unique- they are small, but stand out on their own without blending into a poofy cluster. I love this guy!

seems happy on gulf coast

I have this rose in fairly shady situation (in shade all winter and part sun in summer so it doesn't bloom as much as it might). However it is an an attractive bush, with more new growth and bloom as it matures. Has had a modest scattering of flowers all summer, and is putting on a new flush now at the end of July. In Houston this is quite a feat. It is graceful with an arching habit and pretty foliage.

Great Rose - An All-Time Favorite

In Zone 8b, Carefree Delight is a magnificent, healthy rose we've grown for 20 years. We've enjoyed this rose so much we simply don't ever want to be without it in our garden. The flowers are white/pink and just lovely. It's disease resistant, flowers non-stop, and can be pruned however you like. It can be pruned as a very tall hedge, or kept below 6' as a wide shrub. It flowers all the time, and doesn't need dead-heading as new stems take over to continue the flower show. Give it a wide berth, plant in a ric-rac pattern and allow it to grow into a big plant and you will be rewarded with healthy foliage and countless flowers.

love it

This rose has done very well in our zone 8 . It bloomed all summer with a slight rest . The bees seem to like this one also. I have it with native grasses and salvias. Always alot of bees and butterflies around. Heirloom roses sent healthy plants that I grew for a few months in pots because I don't coddle my plants. Got to be tough to flourish here in central Texas. Thank you .


I live in lower Alabama which is Zone 9. It has been a very hot and humid summer. This rose arrived without any foliage at all. I planted according to directions and within a week it was fully leafed out. Roses appeared in a very short time. It has bloomed well and is handling our heat well.
