gorgeous bloomsReview by jbelow
I'm in Zone 5a in Wisconsin. I planted this rose this summer and have already had many gorgeous blooms! It's on a trellis against a south-facing brick wall where other plants have seemed to suffer from the dry but this has thrived. We've also had periods of rain, rain, and more rain this summer and the foliage hasn't had any problems. A rose that was here when we moved in is about five feet away and has had powdery mildew this summer, and the Joseph's Coat has stood strong and not shown a thing. I'm new to roses and so am very happy that this has done so very well. (Posted on 9/28/2018)
Amazing RoseReview by RodH
I live in SW Oregon zone 8B. This was the rose's second year and I was absolutely amazed at the colors displayed. In spring brought large 4" blooms that started out red and orange then as the bloom faded turned to white and red. The second set of roses brought 22 buds on one lateral and 30 on another. The roses were smaller but more orange and each a slightly different color. The rose kept blooming all summer and just now (September) has stopped budding. The rose was a treasure of color and amazement all season. A true delight in my garden. (Posted on 9/23/2018)
I love the blooms and the shape of the buds. I've been a bit disappointed in the growth this first year.Review by Nancy
I'm in Zone 4-5. I thought that since Joseph's Coat is a climber, it would grow more this first year so that I could start training the leaders more than I've been able so far. Perhaps next year it will cover the trellis. I will have to reread the "How to" on pruning so I can see how much, if any, to take off this time.
I love all the information you give on planting roses. (Posted on 9/22/2018)

Five stars!!Review by Sharon
Gorgeous healthy rose! Everyone comments on the beauty of this rose!! We live in Missouri so the temps are pretty good here. The thorns are pretty tough, but one should be wearing gardening gloves anyway. (Posted on 5/31/2018)
beautiful colorReview by dee
This rose bursts with color. Always has a bloom on it. Is hardy. Like a sunrise. Prettier than the picture (Posted on 11/29/2017)
First bloom within 2 weeks!Review by drsharna
I've wanted to grow this rose for many years because it changes color throughout the bloom cycle, which I love. I bought 2 of these to train to grow up each side of a hay ring that I subbed for a formal arbor. Of the first pair, one plant perished, but HR was gracious to give me a replacement when they were back in stock. The other one bloomed within a couple of weeks and thrived all summer. In September I was able to replace the other one with zero hassles from the company. Hubs helped me with the truck & trailer last weekend and I finally obtained & installed the hay ring and got both plants in the ground. Astonishingly, they are both putting on new growth already. Granted, it's Texas, so our growing seasons are long, but aside from those horrific thorns, I'm thrilled with the Joseph's Coat rose. (Posted on 10/27/2017)
Beautiful bloomsReview by Melvin
We are very pleased with color and number of blooms. Everything we expected! (Posted on 10/14/2017)
Color ChameleonReview by Robert
What a showstopper! They arrived by mistake and it turned out to be love at first sight. The flowers change color from yellow to apricot to cherry and almost-crimson as they die. For me these roses are the perfect summer flowers with their forever-evolving healthy, natural beauty. (Posted on 7/14/2017)
Fantastic colors but with limitationsReview by Al
Hardy, fast growing. Climbed to over 10 feet in year two. Fantastic colors on the blooms. BUT it has the nastiest thorns I have ever seen on a rose which makes it tough to train onto a trellis. Also, it is not continually blooming. It blooms then goes somewhat dormant for a month then reblooms. You get this rose because of the amazing color!

If it continuously bloomed, I would give it 5 stars. (Posted on 7/5/2017)
Heirloom Roses are the best!Review by Debra
I bought a rose plant from Heirloom and one from another place that was half the cost (and half the size) as an experiment, and right out of the gate the Heirloom rose was more vigorous, grew faster, seems to be much healthier, and bloomed more profusely than its spindly cousin. This is the two roses' second season and the Heirloom rose is already going great guns and is well over four times bigger than the same type rose I planted at the same time. So this experiment tells me that Heirloom roses in general and this one in particular are well worth the little extra money - they are out-performing everything else in my garden!

Vigorous climberReview by Shay
Grows really fast! Also have not had any mildew or blackspot, which is really common for roses in the Pacific northwest. The colors are amazing as well. I have it on an arbor trellis and I get so many compliments! (Posted on 4/11/2017)
OutstandingReview by WCR
Planted in the spring. This plant survived the Mississippi summer and a drought without extra TLC! (Posted on 1/28/2017)
UniqueReview by Johnny cans
Very different multi color rose that changes color through its bloom. Large quanties of flowers. Best bloom is first. Blooms decently to the fall. Black spot can be an issue but not a major concern. Low climbing habits with lots of thorns. (Posted on 11/11/2016)
Beautiful!!!Review by Cohen
Ordered this rose and it came extremely well packed. After following the directions for planting, I already have tons of new growth. First blooms have occurred and the color is just like the picture. I ordered 4 different roses at the same time and all are doing well. Nice job all!!!

So specialReview by Dorothy
I received him in May, healthy. It us now June 21st and I have 2 beautiful roses and a few more rosebuds. When the sun shines on him just right, he looks aflame or glowing. Wish I could attach my picture. (Posted on 6/20/2016)
Breathtaking BeautyReview by Gail
The newly opened buds on this climbing rose have a center that glows with a warm yellow light like a burning ember. The longer the flower is exposed to the sun, the redder it becomes. There is a slight fragrance, as well. This is a strong grower and it seems to thrive on neglect. I've grown this beauty for 20+ years in the same spot and it's still blooming reliably! My only negative comment is its tendency to fall victim to blackspot. Of course, in the Puget Sound region of Washington, most every rose does! (Posted on 5/26/2016)

Wonderful - Our favorite!Review by SpringfieldGal
On a trellis behind other roses of similar shades, this is georgeous - ties the whole rose garden together. It's my husband's joy to view it in the morning when the sun comes through the petals. It gets rave reviews from company, too. (Posted on 6/5/2014)
