A Southern Lady!Review by Magnoliascottie
I'm from the South and expanded my rose garden this year and my friends call it the "celebrity" rose garden. I have Mr. Lincoln, John F. Kennedy, Camelot and most of the roses named for country singers. I planted Mrs. King near JFK and Camelot. Could not be a more beautiful combination!!! Bless her heart...she has bloomed her heart out! (Posted on 9/20/2017)
You need more than one.......Review by "Mo"
Oh, this is a pretty, pretty rose! I feel all the roses I've purchased from Heirloom are special, but it's true. And 'Coretta' (we're on a first-name basis) is truly a pretty, pretty rose. She was one of the first plants I ordered from Heirloom, and was part of the reason I felt I wanted to make an actual "rose garden." I ordered a second 'Corretta' to put in it. Both are wonderful. You definitely need more than one......maybe, several. What a great idea....It's "that" pretty. (Posted on 8/22/2017)
Beautiful! Easy to plantReview by diggee17
I bought 2 of these to honor my mother on 10 anniversary of her passing. both bushes are beautiful. The packing of the roses and instructions for planting were great. I hope they handle the winter well as we are in NJ. (Posted on 7/14/2017)

CaptivatingReview by RosyGirl
The first year Coretta Scott King didn't do much. The second year, I was stunned to find her beauty and color unlike any of my other roses. She produced fairly well. (Posted on 12/29/2016)
