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.

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.

This is a Kordes rose, so I was very surprised at how poorly the bush looks every year, not just the blackspot, which I can tolerate to some extent in my other roses, but the rust is so bad that I cringed every time I walked by it. Every year I had high hopes seeing the nice new green foliage, but in no time the rust developed. I gave up thinking it would improve as it matured and I finally removed it.
