Enthusiastic BloomerReview by MomPerson
This rose began blooming soon after being planted (in a pot) and has been continually blooming ever since. If you are a new rose gardener and are anxiously awaiting some blooms, this is the rose to buy. My bush has softly apricot colored blooms which are heavy with petals. So many petals, the stalks can barely hold the blooms up! as the blooms age they become more white. The blooms each last a long time too. Hard to go wrong with this rose! My two complaints with this bush is that I cannot detect any fragrance and I need to prop up the stalks so I can see the face of the blooms. (Posted on 11/25/2017)

I planted this rose in late May and it has bloomed consistently all summer. The flowers start out apricot then fade to cream. Lovely fragrance. You can smell it from several feet away on warm days (Posted on 9/18/2017)
Sweet color!Review by penelopi
The color of this rose is tranquil and relaxing -- in my garden, anyway. This plant is healthy and happy. It came from Heirloom that way and, as all of the roses I get from them are, it continues to flourish and bloom and grow and be wonderful. This is such a nice-colored rose, too. (Posted on 9/15/2017)
Abundance of beautiful bloomsReview by DanF
Have ordered several different roses from Heirloom and have yet to be disappointed. Winter Sunset in particular is a favorite of those that view our garden. Beautiful full continual blooms. The blooms from our bush tend to be more of a beautiful light orange/white. Second season with this rose (NY, region 7) and by now (beginning of June) my wife has already had enough blooms to fill two large vases that adorn our dining room. Wonderful scent as well, not overpowering...subtle and pleasant. Wish these reviews would add the ability to share photos. (Posted on 6/2/2017)
Very ImpressedReview by Danny
Ordered and received mid May in zone 7. Despite an unexpected late frost, the rose has produced several beautiful orange/yellow tinted white blossoms that my wife is thoroughly enjoying in her picking garden. Definitely recommend this variety. (Posted on 6/3/2016)
great bloomer, gorgeous flowersReview by Farm Gal
Our 3-year-old Winter Sunset is planted in full sun (Zone 5) and benefits from extra water off the gutterless eaves of our old farmhouse. We had a very rainy spring and early summer and all the roses were flourishing. Winter Sunset has been blooming pretty much non-stop for months even though roses around the farm are don't get much extra attention except maybe some watering if it's very dry. The flowers are gorgeous. I am about to buy another couple to keep this one company :-) (Posted on 9/19/2013)
Winter Sunset - delightful bloomsReview by Susan
I planted this rose in late May in our perennial bed (Z5) that gets afternoon shade. In late August, despite a hot summer complete with ashes from nearby forest fires, I had beautiful deep apricot, fragrant blooms that made lovely cutting flowers. This rose is still a baby and is a healthy, attractive plant even without blooms. Winter is coming, and I hope this gem gets through our Idaho winters. Highly recommended. (Posted on 9/8/2013)
