Iridescent purple, sweetly scented flowers that fade to slate blue from July to September. A new variety that is the closest yet to a blue rose and has already created a great deal of excitement around the world in rose trials. It is a tall, bushy shrub that repeat flowers well and is very healthy.Please note : All our roses have had a summer prune to tidy them up so they will not be in flower when you receive them.Garden care: Before planting shorten thick roots to 25cm (10in) and reduce top-growth to an outward-facing bud 8-15cm (3-6in) above ground-level. Plant during a frost-free spell, incorporating well-rotted organic matter and a balanced fertiliser into the planting hole. Ensure that the 'bud union' (the bulge at the base of the shoots) is 2.5cm (1in) below the soil.
