We planted this rose last fall and it has now reached about 5 1/2 ft tall. It is a rose that upon seeing it, you know you have to own one for yourself. Such lovely pink and white blooms with a striking yellow stamen. No two blooms are the same. Very aptly named to commemorate those who lost their lives in the 9/11 tragedy, ‘Soaring Spirits’ introduced by Weeks Roses is a fitting tribute to those who died and a great reminder to us all that freedom is never free.
This rose is proving to be quite disease resistant and hardy in my zone 8a Alabama garden. I am hopeful it will continue on its present path of growth and blooms.
