Magnificent, large, well formed 5" blooms (petals 20-25) of apricot, copper-orange on a bushy, vigorous,upright continual blooming plant with bronze-green foliage. We have to keep busy propagating this one because it is so popular. A truly outstanding shrub rose! Marvelous fragrance. Repeat blooming. Very winter hardy.

Beautiful color!Review by Jill
I wasn't really sure about ordering these roses due to the color - wasn't sure how it would fit in with the rest of my colors but the reviews were so good I couldn't resist. I bought two smaller plants. One has grown significantly in just a few weeks and has already got several blooms and many more buds. The other one has been slower to take. I have to say the color is spectacular. I can see them before ever heading out into my yard. I think this rose is going to be a favorite as it grows and fills out. (Posted on 6/13/2017)
GreatReview by Kentucky rose fan
Trying to grow roses organically in the southern US is a challenge. This rose came back from the seemingly dead and is now lovely again in dry partial shade in my backyard. With insect soap, milk spray for any hints of mildew, and vigilance, hoping for an even better show next year. (Posted on 5/3/2017)
My All Time FavoriteReview by Norita Bonin
I have had this climbing rose for over over 15 years. It is my favorite rose ever. It blooms throughout the season and tolerates shade and cold winters. Mine is on the east end of the house so it gets morning sun. I moved this past year to a small cottage and I was thinking of planting just one Heirloom Rose. This is the one I picked. I am in planting zone 5.

all time favoriteReview by rpm4s
I had Westerland in two places I lived before, now again in a third place, all in Zone 7 Virginia. It is large, can be grown as climber but I let it cascade. It is as easy as a shrub rose but more beautiful. Clusters as well as singles. Unusual color, copper-pink mixture that changes some with season. I love the scent, it's not overwhelming but very pleasant kind of lemony. The bush form is beautiful. The new leaves especially are coppery color too. The bush has lots of big thorns though. It will form some hips if you don't deadhead. It gets the usual black spot in my area but doesn't hurt the bush. Prolific bloomer especially if it likes the spot. World-class. (Posted on 12/10/2016)

A True BeautyReview by Shawn from CA
Westerland grows fast and tall, she needs plenty of water and food. She blooms in May and September in my area, the fragrance is marvelous. While the Westerland is shade tolerant she needs morning sun and afternoon shade in hot climates. The plant is very disease resistant but bugs love her sweet sap, be prepared to spray for aphids and thrips. (Posted on 3/29/2015)
