We are no longer growing this rose. We maintain this listing for our customer's reference purposes.

Named for Civil Rights activist and wife of Martin Luther King, Jr, this rose is as strong and captivating as her namesake. Her long, pointed buds open to large, full, clustered blooms with a creamy white center and coral-orange dipped edges. The color seems to brighten as each blossom opens to reveal 30+ petals on a 4” flower. Coretta Scott King has a moderate fragrance and excellent disease resistance growing to an average of 3-5’ in height. We love her in beds, borders, or containers as she thrives in all locations!

Stunning, but not very productive

First year, I got maybe 2 roses. 2nd yr was better but still maybe only 8 blooms despite being in a primo place. It weathered through, so hoping for a better yr 3 as the flowers are stunning.

Arrived with little to no foliage but in a few weeks time, has now exploded with rich dark green leaves & is just about ready to put out her 1st blooms! So far so good.

Wonderful rose Bbush.

I have three of these and they perform beautifully. Breathtaking blooms and can take the heat/cold of the prairie here in Kansas. Highly recommended!

I'm from the South and expanded my rose garden this year and my friends call it the "celebrity" rose garden. I have Mr. Lincoln, John F. Kennedy, Camelot and most of the roses named for country singers. I planted Mrs. King near JFK and Camelot. Could not be a more beautiful combination!!! Bless her heart...she has bloomed her heart out!

You need more than one.......

Oh, this is a pretty, pretty rose! I feel all the roses I've purchased from Heirloom are special, but it's true. And 'Coretta' (we're on a first-name basis) is truly a pretty, pretty rose. She was one of the first plants I ordered from Heirloom, and was part of the reason I felt I wanted to make an actual "rose garden." I ordered a second 'Corretta' to put in it. Both are wonderful. You definitely need more than one......maybe, several. What a great idea....It's "that" pretty.
