Report from eastern England, the sunnier drier side..

Very impressed with 'Heritage' in its first season, it simply took off right out of the gate.. and produced tall arching growth to 5 feet or so.. continuously in bloom, delicious scent on a very healthy bush - no spray - with an angular habit.. I've had to prune it back but it's suitable for pegging..
Blooms last about 3 days in cool conditions.. maybe less in heat.. I first grew this rose in 1986 so this is a revisit ..

Here in Z8 no-spray, Heritage has been very vigorous in both red and grey clay, and sandy soil. Stays evergreen and gets huge in no full sun to all day full sun. The flowers are very pretty but do blow quickly with not much scent yet. Using for versatile location landscaping, not for the vase.

I have to put in a vote for Heritage. It's my all-time favorite rose. I have an own-root here in Eastern Washington zone 5b that has been absolutely trouble-free for over 10 years. Five feet tall and almost as wide, with a massive spring display and reliable smaller flushes throughout the summer. Yes, the blooms shatter quickly and do not stand up to rain very well, but their scent and beauty more than make up for that, at least for me.
