Most beautiful, large 4", fully double blooms are a lovely shade of apricot, copper and gold which are produced in cascades.

Easy to care for!Review by Cate

This is my first Climber and I've been so pleased. Several blooms it's first summer and it smells heavenly. It was shipped to me in a tub which I think helped it to transfer to my Missouri zone 6 Home with no trouble. Looking forward to next year's growth on my patio fence. (Posted on 10/11/2018)
First seasonReview by Loverly
Rating
Bare root rose barely survived my wrong handling, insects, caterpillars, even rabbits until I installed a fine mesh cage around each rose, and roller-coaster temps and rains all spring and summer in Chicago, zone 5. But amazingly, it sent up yet another shoot and is now in its 5th blooming! The flower is pure loveliness, its pink, orange, and yellow breathtakingly lovely. "First year it sleeps. Second year it creeps. Third year it leaps" so the saying goes. I'm eager to see what it'll do next year! (Posted on 9/13/2018)
Peachy color and delicious scent.Review by sarah

We are zone 7 . Compassion is a gorgeous peachy color , and delicious citrusy scent . I've only had it a few months , but it has had several flowers and seems to be growing well. I got it to climb up a pergola ; I've grown it before , in England , and it's a really lovely rose.

My rose is planted in Zone 7. It has done great since I planted it and I bought another one and it is growing like crazy. It is very pretty, fragrant, hardy and mine have grown fast. (Posted on 9/6/2018)

Beautiful rose!Review by Amandah
Rating
I purchased four of these to put along a tall fence in my backyard. I was pleased with how they were shipped and the plants looked pretty good when they arrived. I live in a high mountain valley (zone 5) in Utah so it can be very dry here. These plants are doing wonderfully! The have been in the ground for a few months and they are green and vibrant with new growth. The roses themselves are beautiful and smell heavenly. I am anxious to see how they fair during the winter. I am hopeful becuase they have done so well thus far. I will definitely be purchasing again to fulfill my dream of a rose covered fence.

My first order and my favoriteReview by Miho
Rating
Yesterday, the first flower bloomed and it's a delicate gradation of copper, light yellow, and salmon pink. I've been amazed by it's shape: the outer layers opened outward while rests curled inward. I cut it and put into a small grass inside. My husband and I enjoyed smelling its fruity scent. This is my first order from Heirloom Roses and I am so glad to have purchased this rose.

Strong grower, great scent, beautiful bloomsReview by Joseph

Compassion was the first climbing rose I ever owned, having ordered it about 18 months ago.
The first year it seemed to not do much other than establish itself. But the next year it exploded with growth, reaching the top of our 12-foot arbor! I've been able to prune and arrange the canes on the arbor in a way that should maximize blooming, and I'm really excited to see the results.
This plant's blooms are very fragrant and nicely-shaped, and they look great as cut flowers. Its growth is vigorous, so be prepared! (Posted on 2/1/2017)
Seems to love the high desertReview by Susanna

The first once I bought several years ago; it covers a fence and scents a walkway. It pleases me so much I bought a second one last summer for to grow on a trellis in another area of the garden. Seems to love the high desert climate here in south-east Arizona. (Posted on 1/3/2017)
as hardy as it is prettyReview by Mecquelch

This is one of several roses that I purchased more than five years ago from Heirloom. It survived three moves in 12 months and sitting in a garbage bag for two days. It now cozies up to my White Iceberg and looks stunning. (Posted on 2/3/2014)
Lovely flowers, aggressive growerReview by Malicetx
Rating
Once I found a spot in full sun that this one loved, it really took off. It's a very aggressive grower, with canes bigger than my thumb in two seasons, so give her plenty of room. The flowers are plentiful and pretty, but are really a rather common shade of pink. (Posted on 12/4/2013)
Sweet and strongReview by Scent seeker

Compassion is planted at my front entrance and you see and smell the flowers as you climb the steps to the porch. I adore this rose! I have had it for two years. The first year it didn't do much but the second year I got multiple flowers-some single and some in clusters on very sturdy and strong canes. I sprayed once for aphids and I gave it one application of rose food. Otherwise, no care whatsoever. One cane has grown this summer all the way up the eves of the house. Quite a surprise! This rose only gets afternoon sun where I have it so I am pleased. The fragrance is delightful. The color is more peach than this image shows. (Posted on 9/18/2013)
