Own root roses are the only way to goReview by Erin
I have been growing roses for 40 plus years and believe that own root roses are the best type of roses to grow for a number of reasons. In the case of SPL, this particular rose is very healthy, beautiful, and fragrant. Its blooms are a rich pink, with lots of depth. It grows large, but this is typical for OGRs. Heirloom is a great nursery to buy from too. They always have healthy plants and communicate well with their customers. (Posted on 10/5/2017)
Better than expected!Review by BETTY
I love the fragrant old roses, and this one deserves all that love. The blooms are large, beautifully shaped and have an irresistible fragrance. I planted it last fall and just cut the first full bloom today; and, this tiny bush already has 5-6 buds that will open soon. It has performed beyond my expectations, especially considering that it had to be uprooted, then replanted a couple of weeks ago in order to have a nearby tree removed. At that time it had not even formed buds and I fully expected I would have to wait until next year to enjoy its blooms, if not replace it entirely. I am shocked at its resilience and I look forward to many years of beautiful rose blossoms from this bush. (Posted on 4/25/2016)
