Plant details

Heritage' is a vigorous shrub rose with open clusters of fully double flowers. The light pink blooms are lemon scented and are borne freely throughout the summer if regularly deadheaded. As a shrub rose, it is best pruned in late summer, after flowering has finished. Prune most stems lightly. To encourage young, vigorous growth, cut back a few of the oldest stems each year.
