One of my favoritesReview by Karl
I agree with all the other reviewers. I first bought this rose about 15 years ago, and have replaced it several times because it is winter sensitive. I live in Zone 5, but close to Lake Michigan. I have 5 RH roses now that have survived for 5 years by mounding them with soil and sand in the late fall and putting styrofoam rose cones on them for the winter. I think 3 have come from Heirloom. I am so grateful that Heirloom still stocks this rose. I think they have the best stock. (Posted on 2/23/2018)
My first roseReview by Jackie
Royal Highness was my first hybrid tea rose over 45 years ago. She stayed in my memory after moving away from my first house. I finally found her again at Heirloom Roses. I am so happy with her unique romantic pink beautiful blooms and healthy shiny leaves. Bringing an old memory to life thru Royal Highness has rekindled my love of roses. I now have 40 roses but none as stunning and meaningful as Royal Highness! (Posted on 9/13/2017)
Wonderful Rose!Review by Cameron
This rose is beautiful cut as well as on the plant. It smells amazing and is one of my favorite roses. It has lovely form and opens nicely. Even the foliage on mine was nice. (Posted on 5/26/2017)
One of our favoritesReview by Robert
This stunning rose is a favorite in our collection. Her blooms are gorgeous, fragrant and last a while in the vase. This is our third season with our current "Royal Highness" and she is showing the best start yet. Can't wait to see her in all her spring glory. (Posted on 3/19/2015)
