Vigorous, easy to grow and uniquely beautiful Review by Joyce
Rating
I've grown Sally in Southern California and now in Eugene, Oregon with huge success. It grows very quickly and can be trained along a tall fence or on a strong trellis but keep in mind it has large thorns. It would become a large, broad shrub left on its own, and its stiff canes will arch over, creating an abundance of clustered blooms that are as much a delight from a distance as they are close up. The pink buds contrast with fully opened flowers in the same cluster and are charming in a vase. You might easily have a huge bouquet! (Posted on 6/18/2018)
Great rose, very pleased!Review by Bonnie Manion

I have had a Sally Holmes rose before and loved it. I recently purchased two and am growing them as a showy hedge. I have been very pleased, my roses are healthy, happy, and have grown so much already and delighted me with their first set of blooms! (Posted on 6/5/2018)

Many years ago I had a Sally Holmes, no longer available in my area. I had to have another one. Found Heirloom Roses on line, so glad I did. Sally is still very small but full of blooms. In zone 10 she blooms year round. (Posted on 5/11/2018)
Perfect roseReview by Karen

I am in zone 8B. I have grown Sally Holmes here and in California 9B zone. Sally blooms all winter here and all spring, summer and fall! It was in bloom through our snows and kept blooming! I am very impressed with it. Glad that I have seven of them here! I have one planted in shade and it's doing fine. Most are in sun and happy. (Posted on 1/5/2018)
Lovely soft color, a beautyReview by Michael

Very nice stock delivered from Heirloom Roses. Began growing and blooming almost immediately. Big clusters of soft hued flowers that change as they age, delighting the eye. Just a stunning rose. I'm on the coast north of Half Moon Bay and this rose tolerates our fog without difficulty. (Posted on 9/29/2017)
fast grower but no bloomsReview by mnhla

Happy with the quick growth of the two Sally Holmes I bought 18 months ago but sadly they have never bloomed once. Lots of sunlight and water so I'm not sure what the problem is. (Posted on 2/17/2017)
Everything said about this rose is true.Review by Margaret L.
Rating
Everything previous reviewers have said is true. Sally is VERY BIG, and always beautiful. Planted on the North-East side of our house in foggy Berkeley, CA, she has some Eucalyptus trees to her East, and so never gets much in the way of direct sun. But she is covered with blooms for about two months, and then keeps putting out new sprays with blooms all along the boughs. I've never fed her, never sprayed her, and when we stopped sprinkling during our recent drought she was on her own. She did marvelously. She has a little blackspot on old branches, but nothing to worry about. She has a naturally graceful shape, so I don't bother to prune her, except when I want a spray for a vase, or want to keep her off the front porch. (Posted on 4/5/2016)
Amazingly beautiful!Review by Janet

I purchased my first Sally Holmes rose 13 years ago. For twelve years I enjoyed my Sally as it grew over six feet tall and bloomed several times per year. When I purchased a new home earlier this year I knew it wouldn't be complete until I planted a new Sally. Not only is this rose beautiful but is hardy and easy to grow. (Posted on 2/7/2016)
Exceeded my expectationsReview by Olivia
Rating
I bought two of these two years ago and planted. I thought when I got them they were very small and wondered how they would perform.
They are outrageous,beautiful, and such a joy to behold. They are just in full bloom and every morning I go out and admire.
Thank you Heirloom Roses for supplying such a wonderful product line. I am looking for more places in the yard to plant more! (Posted on 5/6/2014)
Traffic StoppingReview by linners
Rating
In my northern California garden, Sally literally stops traffic when in bloom. People are always asking about her. Of course, my shrub got very big, maybe because it has no support as a climber would, but its at least ten feet wide and tall.Shows up on Google Earth! Looks like a beautiful, huge bridal bouquet. In cool weather the flowers are tinged with pink. Very easy carefree plant! (Posted on 4/20/2014)
Single BeautyReview by Susan

If I could only have one rose, it would be this one. Quite shade tolerant, but the shadier, the more susceptible to black spot she is. Huge first flush, continual light bloom thereafter. The longest vase life of any rose since the tight buds will continue to open for days and days as you pick off the spent blossoms. Highly rated ARS, this is a Must Have rose. (Posted on 11/15/2013)
My favoriteReview by bmarie
Rating
I planted this rose after seeing it at Peninsula Park Rose Gardens in Portland OR. It is a repeat bloomer in my yard where it's against a west facing wall. I think it would be better if shaded from the hot afternoon sun which bleaches the pale pink blossoms to white. But the first show of blooms in the spring is amazing with the bush covered with flowers. It does keep blooming, has no disease problems and if you have the space, I recommend it very highly.

An unforgettable roseReview by JenniferL

I grew Sally Holmes against a black iron fence in a very shady area, but right up by the road. Many folks stopped to admire her and ask for the name of the rose. She gave me many lovely bouquets too and all without much care or fuss. What a winner! (Posted on 5/12/2013)
