You can find a similar rose in our David Austin Roses collection.

This is a very robust and free flowering rose, bearing large, rosette-shaped flowers that are cupped at first; the petals later re-flexing. The color is soft apricot, paling to cream on the outer petals, the whole flower paling to cream with age. The blooms are produced very freely, in large clusters elegantly poised on the end of slightly arching stems. They have a delightful Tea Rose fragrance. 3 1/2" bloom with 41 petals.

Hardy Beautiful Robust Rose

We planted Crocus Rose (and Charles Darwin) on April 30, 2018 in Zone 5 on the south side of the foundation of our home in suburban Chicagoland area. It easily received at least 8+ hours of direct sunlight. It arrived as a small but healthy 1G plant and grew quickly a couple weeks after planting. One cane grew to be almost 4' tall by the end of the season! We had to stake it to keep it from whipping around in the wind. It surprised us with its beautiful blooms within a month after we had planted it. We actually had quite a few small, but beautiful, blooms before frost had set in by late October 2018. This rose was definitely very robust and lush. It had very few blackspots but they were easy to manage. It smelled wonderful and looked beautiful in our photographs. This rose was one of 14 that we had planted last year and it was probably the best performer of the group. It survived our "polar vortex" this past winter and was one of the first to break dormancy and the first to bud once again in Spring 2019! We are amazed by the robustness and beauty of this rose and we would definitely recommend it. - 05/29//2019.

Love this rose.

I live in zone 5 in New Hampshire. I grew this rose at a previous residence and loved it so naturally had to have it again. I have purchased many roses from Heirloom in the past and have never been disappointed. Their products are first rate and have always performed well.
