Heaven on Earth has blooms of the most unusual blending of colors.

Rita, located on the north shore of Nassau County Long Island, NY zone 6/7, where it is humid in the summer and roses always need to be sprayed with systemic fungicide to avoid blackspot.

Heaven on Earth is an interesting rose because the color of its blooms cannot be predicted. They're usually coral-orange, but sometimes they're closer to yellow or cream, and occasionally they're unmistakably pink. It's not an impressive rose bush. The canes and branches often are too weak to hold the large blooms upright.
