DETAILED DESCRIPTION

This is a flower of delicate shell-like beauty. The blooms are of perfect cupped formation and of medium size; they are a very soft, clear pink at the centre, while the outer petals are almost white. There is a wonderful fragrance, with overtones of fruit, honey and carnation on a myrrh background. To encourage repeat-flowering, dead head the spent blooms. If you choose not to dead head, a very good crop of hips will be produced later in the season.

GROWTH HABIT

‘Heritage’ is a shapely, well-rounded shrub with strong, bushy growth and few thorns. The characteristic Musk Rose foliage is smooth and greyish-green in colour.
