Three for Thursday: Heritage Rose

Today on Three for Thursday: a David Austin English rose, 'Heritage'.

I wish I could capture the fragrance for you, too ... it's swoonworthy.

You can see this rose in an April post, when I was sure that the plant had been mislabeled. Happily I was wrong: it seems that this delicate beauty behaves a bit differently in my climate than that of the English countryside.

I didn't get this post up in time to invite y'all to join me in posting Three for Thursday, but this is a heads-up for next week. Cheryl at Conscious Gardening joined me on a previous Thursday: those scarecrows were pretty danged funny! David at Tropical Texana is participating again this week. I'd love to have more of y'all do so. Choose a theme (whatever you want, feel free to interpret it loosely) and choose three photographs to share, then have at it!

At least it does perform for you. What a lovely Rose. I do love those Austin roses. Just gorgeous. I'll put the 3 for Thurs to mull in my brain.

Cindy, I love this meme. I also love 'Heritage'. She does well here too in the spring and fall. Right now, she's unhappy. I don't blame her. :)

David Austin roses are what I consider a standard by which I evaluate a rose. It's the perfect look, scent and this is a very nice photo.
