Interestingly, this Heirloom Rose Bush (Rosa 'JACbloom') is not a true heirloom. True heirlooms have been around since before 1867 when the first Hybrid Tea Rose, 'La France', was introduced, ushering in a new era of 'modern' Roses.
And Heirloom is a decidedly modern Rose! Introduced in 1972. It has fantastic qualities that make it an heirloom in your garden for your children, and your grandchildren to enjoy!
The color is a rich mauve blend that sometimes borders on pink and sometimes on purple. It is semi-double and has a slight hint of classic Tea-Rose fragrance.
What makes Heirloom really stand out is it’s among only a handful of Roses that is truly shade-tolerant. This is a healthy Hybrid Tea that demands a priority position in your garden.
All Roses bloom better in full sun, but this Rose will still give you blooms in light shade, so that gives you more options when trying to find the perfect spot to plant!
Rose gardens and Mixed-Shrub borders are ideal locations for Roses! Cutting gardens and Formal plantings are highlighted by the classic beauty and fragrance of Heirloom Rose!
Roses do their very best in full sun for the most blooms, but Heirloom surprisingly tolerates light shade. Choose a location with ample air circulation and the drying powers of the morning sun.
Provide ample water for a moderately, yet consistently moist soil environment. Watering during times of drought and peak summer temperatures, and mulch the root system well, without piling it against the crown.
Roses like a rich, organically high soil medium to grow in and especially need a very well-drained site. Roses cannot tolerate soggy conditions. Choose a slow-release, organic fertilizer for Roses to keep yours happy and healthy!
Heirloom Rose brings a lifetime of classic beauty, modern disease resistance, as well as fresh color and quality performance. Head over to NatureHills.com to buy your own Heirloom Rose Bush today!
