Yes, it’s that purple and that fragrant and that novel! A black velvet purple with spicy clove fragrance like no other rose on the market. Despite being a Shrub, the compact rounded plant will lend itself to smaller spaces and enrich any landscape. Bright green leaves contrast nicely to the mysteriously colored flowers & showy yellow stamens. Big clusters give lots of color.
