Heirloom Hybrid Tea Rose



Strong, Fruity Fragrance

A rich tapestry of color, Heirloom is a gorgeous blend of hot pink, pale violet, and silver. The overall effect has been called "lilac", "lavender", or "mauve", but the best word for it is simply "gorgeous"!

The pointed, ovoid buds open in summer to loose blooms of 30 to 35 petals, each uniquely painted and overflowing with a strong, sweet fragrance that carries hints of raspberry, sweet wine, and rose all at once. A boon for the garden and the vase alike, these lovely, fragrant blooms are at their best in cooler weather, with noticeably larger blooms and richer tones during mild summers.

Heirloom was introduced by Jackson and Perkins, bred by our very own William A. Warriner in 1972. Throughout its tenure it has garnered great renown and spawned some breathtaking children, like the AARS-winning Intrigue. Growing just about 3 feet high and 4 feet wide, this nicely rounded shrub sets its dark green foliage all the way down to the ground. It displays exceptional garden performance, and about the only maintenance it requires is a good pruning and the addition of freeze protection in the spring. Remove diseased, dead, or crossing canes and weak canes less than the thickness of a pencil. Reduce the overall height of the canes by about one third, or more in colder areas.

Heirloom is sure to fill your life with color and fragrance all summer long for years to come. Enjoy this timeless rose in the cutting garden, ornamental bed, and border alike.

Better than expected...

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

I purchased multiple bare root roses earlier, in January (Hierloom, Memorial Day, John Paul, and Signature). They arrived with strong, healthy canes, ready to plant. I soaked them overnight, amended and prepped the soil, then planted them. I wish that I could post pics. They’re gorgeous: healthy plants with dark green foliage, beautiful big blooms. My neighbors, family & friends have commented positively about these roses. I’ve grown roses for years, and these have exceeded my expectations.

Heirloom Hybrid Tea Rose

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

Intoxicating fragrance! This rose turned out to be amazing. I love the strong fragrance. The blooms are also a unique silvery pink with a hint of lavender which I like. I have it planted in a part-shade location that gets strong early morning sun. It seems to be liking it so far!
