Very strong growerReview by Alice
In other reviews I noted there was a long delay in getting my 7 rose order in the ground. This one is supposed to go at the corner of the conservatory room that was supposed to be finished last year and the contractor assured me would be finished by March this year. Not. All's done but the brick veneer so this one is still in a container. I just moved it to a bigger pot and it's sending out a lot of new growth and looking great for all it's been through. I'll update when it finally gets to get out and take over the conservatory room . (Posted on 8/11/2017)
Love Awakening!!Review by SheilaF
I just recently received my Awakening plant from Heirloom Roses, and planted it immediately. Within two weeks after planting, this perfect little rose bush has already bloomed and is starting to spread upward tendrils that are ready to climb. The blooms are gorgeous, with a profuse amount of blush pink petals. And, it only receives partial morning sunlight for around seven hours a day. My husband LOVES it, and has asked me to purchase more. (Posted on 5/18/2017)
Two Story High RoseReview by Sandy

I am guessing that most people do not realize the potential size of this rose!
I purchased this rose about 5 years ago; at the time it was probably 1 foot high.....
Placed it in the corner of the yard, facing east/south.
Apparently it was THE ideal location, for in 5 years this rose has grown to a height of
TWO stories and a width of about 10 - 15 feet! I have NEVER seen such a rose! It
blooms heavily in the late Spring/early Summer and is covered with pale pinkish/apricot
color roses; many petals per bloom.
I will have to trim it in early Spring, a task I will reluctantly do.
This is truly a most unusual rose, and very hardy.
Recommend this for use in a location where it can grow to it's heart content! (Posted on 11/27/2013)
Superior Climbing RoseReview by Pastel~Passion
If you want a reliable, disease resistant, climbing rose that will bloom it's heart out for you than this is the beauty to choose. I purchased my 1st Awakening climber from Heirloom Roses several years ago. I planted Awakening about 4 feet away from the base of my Maple tree & am presently training this rose to climb the tree. To say that Awakening can tolerate some shade would be an understatement for me as I've metered the sunlight where this rose is planted & it registers as shade(.) I never spray, dust or use any systemic on this rose...I don't use concoctions/pesticides/toxins as a rule in my garden, but, most of the other roses I do grow will occasionally have aphids & Awakening doesn't. This climbing rose tends to retain it rich~glossy colored green leaves. Awakening truly is pretty both in bloom or with just its greenery. It blooms more than once a season for me & often feels as though it is a continual bloom. And when Awakening blooms, it's not just a few roses here & there as it tends to bloom all over (rather extraordinary for any rose to bloom like this one does in the shade). This is just a pretty rose to have growing in your yard, especially if you have a lot of shaded spots. However it is a climber in ever sense, so you may want to showcase Awakening with good support. Watch out for rabbits as they seem to love Awakening too!
