Joan Fontaine™

Type: Shrub

Heirloom Roses was very proud to name this exceptional shrub rose of our own hybridizing efforts in honor of that elegant star from the golden age of movies: the Academy-Award winning Joan Fontaine. The wonderful, fragrant 4" blooms (petals 75+) begin with buds of soft, flesh pink and open to a creamy white with a glowing touch of amber in the center. The fully double, English-style flowers are carried on a striking continual blooming plant with deep-green foliage.

Beautiful, classic, soft, romanticReview by MaddieD
For me, this rose has been a over achiever with waves of blossoms! And what beautiful blossoms with a classic rose shape and soft shading. Photos do not do it justice, much more beautiful in person. Seems quite resistant to black spot which has plagued nearby roses. (Posted on 9/27/2017)
one of my bestReview by love
This rose is so beautiful, so worth the wait for that first bloom. I have used this one in wedding bouquets, it is just pure romance in a flower. Just a soft cupping, creamy, rose. One of my favorite roses, and I have about 60! (Posted on 6/3/2014)
