I'm going to the sale at Heirloom Roses tomorrow and would love to hear about some of your Heirloom favorites (any varieties) in pink, yellow, apricot/peach, and white.

Thanks in advance!

You'll have a great day - just look for those in the garden with great foliage (no spray) and you can't go wrong.

I haven't bought roses in several years but love their Chinatown for vigor and fragrance (yellow), Peach Blossom for fragrance and cool hips (peach) although the flowers are a little short lived on Peach Blossom - does repeat well though.

For a yellow shortie with a lot of cute factor, I've enjoyed Minilights for a very long time in my garden. You didn't mention red, but Eyeopener always draws comments and it's a toughie, almost no care - if the deer would just leave it alone.

Thanks for your response! I went yesterday and had a great time. There was still a lot to choose from at 5 p.m. yesterday, so if anyone has time this morning, you might want to check it out!

Their display gardens are so fun to walk through.

RE: Favorites from Heirloom Roses

They are one of the rose vendors I do buy from, but my rose space is pretty much filled up by now. My favorites were their Old Garden Roses (heirlooms) and their superb selection of older own-root Austins that are hard to find these days. Alas, they have cut back on selections in those two areas.

I had a friend who swore that their breeding program was producing some of the most interesting fragrant modern roses around.
