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

A near perfect rose. Its classically shaped, old-fashioned rose blooms are a lovely, soft pink, which is perfect for this delicate, cup-shaped beauty. One of the most outstanding of the English Roses. Its medium sized 3 1/2" blooms (petals 30) are true perfection in form and fragrance, which has a strong heady fragrance with a touch of lemon. A vigorous, bushy plant with few thorns. Excellent repeat blooming characteristics. Performs well in partial shade and makes a great cut flower.

Growing still in Northern NY

I am sure I planted “Heritage” when my garden climate was more a zone 4, then the 5 it is now days and I hoped for the best. So about 20 years later up where Lake Ontario meets the St. Lawrence River it was magnificent this year with virtually no care. I looked it up here because I thought of sending one to the friend that reminded me of its name this summer. She is now moving to near Tulsa OK., and I would love to have her plant one there next summer, in remembrance of our love of flower gardens.

Sweetly Scented Heritage Rose

During its first year after planting last fall, Heritage has proved to be a vigorous grower in my Zone 6 garden. I did help my Heritage with weekly supplemental water and some liquid Kelp during a very hot, dry summer here in the Northeast, and it has done remarkably well with some sporadic blooming throughout the season - not bad for a first-year rose! If you want to cut these roses for bouquets, do so when they're still in bud and the blooms will last much longer. The fragrance is heavenly!

Healthy bush, gorgeous blooms

I'm growing Heritage in a pot that gets morning sun and some shade in the afternoon. The flowers are perfectly shaped and such a lovely, delicate pink. Rose slugs liked the leaves a bit too much, but Heritage kept blooming despite that. This year's growth looks super thick and healthy. Didn't really like the scent in the first year - am hoping it improves.

So beautiful

Roses arrived in such perfect condition. I'll never order roses from another site. Can't wait for them to grow and bloom.
