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.

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.

Central Texas
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!

Anne in zone 6a: Update
Update: Finally Performing

I wrote an earlier review indicating my disappointment in this rose. The first 2 winters, there was dieback almost to the ground. The third summer, she grew to about 2-3 feet by July and produced a few roses but they were small and a faded dull pink. I now realize that the problem in summer 2022 was the lengthy heat wave we had. .Also, I added a light, diluted application of seaweed/fish emulsion (for the first time ever) in late August. In the cooler weather of September and October, this rose climbed to almost 6 feet and produced several large, lovely roses with rich color. I finally saw what others were talking about! I still haven’t seen the hues described by Heirloom on its website but it seems pretty clear the problem was too much heat and sun, and I believe this rose will do beautifully with more moderate temperatures.
