Not an heirloom, but could be!
Interestingly, this ‘Heirloom Rose’ (Rosa ‘Heirloom’) is not an heirloom rose. True heirloom roses are roses that have been around since before 1867 when the first hybrid tea rose, ‘La France’, was introduced ushering in a new era of ‘modern’ roses.
‘Heirloom’ is a decidedly modern rose, introduced in 1972. It has fantastic qualities, though, that will make it an heirloom in your garden for your children and grandchildren to enjoy!
This is a healthy hybrid tea that can reach up to 6’ tall demanding a priority position in your garden. 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, though, is that it is one of only a handful of roses that is truly shade-tolerant. 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.
‘Heirloom’ will bring a fresh color and quality performance to your garden, but only if you order soon!
