Heaven on Earth – An Amazing Pink Rose

My friend Susan gave me a bare root rose a few months ago. I planted it in full sun and recently have been enjoying some amazing large pink blooms. The flowers are too big for the stems so I cut them when half open for flower arrangements. I am not usually fond of pink flowers and I rarely buy plants from catalogs or web sites but “Heaven on Earth” is exceptional.  Information from the company which sells it:

Jackson & Perkins Company – Heaven on Earth Floribunda Rose Item No. 28604 “Unlike any other floribunda we’ve seen- immense, peony-like flowers with breathtaking color and fragrance.”

“Rosa Heaven on Earth /Light Pink,Apricot /Ovoid,Pointed buds / Blooms 5″ / 40 petals / 14″-16″ stems / Dark Green foliage / Spicy fragrance / Full Sun / Shipped as Bareroot / Height: 3 ft – 4 ft”

Some photos of my blooms:
