Fab rose!Review by Lisa b
If the shade of pink doesn't grab you then the perfume will- its right outside my front door where I can run out to sniff the gorgeousness...healthy and problem free, never out of control and few thorns. (Posted on 10/31/2017)
One of the best Pinks - Great Customer Experience Too!Review by Noelle
I've grown Memorial Day for years, both in Tennessee and Ohio (needs a bit of winter protection up north) and I can easily say it's my favorite pink rose ever - extremely fragrant, huge blooms and fine habit.
As for my experience with Heirloom Roses (new to me this year), they've been fantastic. We had a shipping issue with our first rose (extensively damaged in transit) and I was heartbroken. Heirloom followed up immediately upon contact and supplied another rose free of charge with expedited shipping which I received within 4 days. Can't say enough good things about this company, and I'll be a customer for life. (Posted on 10/18/2017)

Huge BloomsReview by Clemq
This is one of my all time favorite tea roses. Huge long lasting blooms on a gorgeous healthy bush. Is tall, so plant toward the back of your garden. Continuous blooming all Summer. (Posted on 10/1/2014)
Very Happy!Review by TERESA
I ordered, received, and planted my Memorial Day in March. This week, June 10th, we have our first bloom! The leaves are a nice dark green and the rose is a soft pink (looks exactly like the catalog picture). The contrast is beautiful. It has a strong "traditional rose" scent. I can't wait to see/smell it in full bloom! (Posted on 6/10/2014)

Beautiful scent… Mine is thornlessReview by cscinsl
Love my Memorial Day. The scent is unmatched and the blooms are a beautiful lavender. This is the third year I've had mine and this year it has no thorns. A very special rose (Posted on 4/14/2014)
Amazing RoseReview by Lorre
This is such a beautiful rose with a wonderful fragrance. I planted my first one last summer and bought thee more this year, which I planted the beginning of June. In less than three months' time, they are now close to 30" tall. This rose grows quite well and strong, even though my thumb is black as tar. :) I am quite the novice and Memorial Day is foolproof. You won't be disappointed! (Posted on 9/29/2013)
