There are few roses as popular as those of deep crimson colouring – and Taxable Goods so difficult to breed. ‘Heathcliff’ is a beautiful addition to English Roses of this colour. It has large, fully double flowers of deep rosette shape. The colour is a deep crimson, with a certain softness that is reminiscent of some of the old red Gallica Roses. It is a healthy variety, with shiny, deep green leaves. Its fragrance is most pleasing and rather unusual – basically tea rose with a mixture of Old Rose and just a hint of cedar wood.

It forms a bushy, rather upright shrub that ideal rose for adding interest to mixed borders or rose borders. Position this rose toward the front or middle of the border.

Named for the character in Emily Brontë’s classic novel, Wuthering Heights.
