Heritage Rose * David Austin Rose * Introduced 1984

The Heritage Rose has been a reliable performer in our garden. It gets to 4' tall by 6' wide. The Heritage Rose is reputedly susceptible to rust and mildew, but if planted in a sunny location it should do quite well. Thus far in a coastal garden I have escaped both rust and mildew except during the deepest periods of the dreaded June Gloom.

The parents of the Heritage Rose include 'Iceberg' X seedling X 'Wife of Bath'.
