beautiful color and shapeReview by Maria

We are located at a high elevation so I consider us to be Zone 4. The first flowers were small but well shaped with a light fragrance. Subsequent flowers were larger in size. Our winters can be very cold and windy so I will see if this little beauty survives. (Posted on 9/19/2018)
Prettiest Griffith Buck PINK . A perfect rose!Review by Linda
Rating
Aunt Honey is my newest Buck rose and may become my favorite. She has not had to go through a northern Ohio winter yet but I've never lost a Buck rose for any reason. Because I live in zone 6, I have bought Buck roses almost exclusively for 30 years. Thank you Heirloom roses for selling Buck roses. (Posted on 9/12/2018)

It rocks! Review by Tall and handsome

My original hope was that this would be like Queen Elizabeth, only better. Indeed. Great fragrance, strong canes about a yard/meter tall, awesome disease resistance, floriferous, and intense color. (Posted on 4/4/2017)
Aunt Honey is a lovely pink rose with a hardy constitution!Review by Linda

I live in northeastern Missouri (zone 5 B) and planted Aunt Honey mid-May 2016. She arrived as a 15" sprout and by mid-November was 5' tall and still blooming like crazy. I really enjoy the clear deep pink color and fragrance. I love Buck roses as they can handle the weather this area deals out. Black spot is to a minimum and all new growth is vigorous.
If you want a rose that is lovely and winter hardy Buck roses do not disapoint. (Posted on 12/12/2016)
Love Aunt HoneyReview by Kathy

Planted this rose from Heirloom Roses for my granddaughter in the spring of 2014 before the worst winter in Massachusetts history. It was buried under 6 feet of snow, yes really 6 feet, and it came back and bloomed beautifully all summer. Love Aunt Honey! (Posted on 12/20/2015)
Lovely "birthday cake" pinkReview by Cheryl

When I moved to a colder zone this rose was one of the few that has survived and continues to bless us with blooms throughout the summer. She has a place of honor at the entrance of my rose garden. (Posted on 3/23/2015)
