'AUSmash' rose Reviews & Comments
I bought 'Heavenly Rosalind' this year from Heirloom Roses in Oregon.
So far, I am very happy with the purchase. The plant is growing into a neat, tidy shrub, with lots of buds. The flowers are extremely beautiful, of a matte white color tinted with pink and lavender.
If you love albas, you will also love this alba hybrid.
I believe Heirloom still has a few of this plant left. It is on the rather loong list of cultivars which the DA USA company is dropping this year. What that means is that the DA USA company itself and any seller, such as Heirloom, licensed by it will not be propagating this rose again. Unless one of the smaller specialty nurseries picks this up, it will disappear from commerce in the USA.
The only fault I find in this rose so far is that, like its' parent, 'Heritage', it does drop its' petals rather soon. I consider this cultivar, so far, as excellent for the garden, maybe not as good for cut flower production. Growth habit and overall appearance, IMHO, are far superior to that of 'Heritage'.
