AARS Winner
Lavender roses were no Utopia until this heavenly rose came along. The ex­ceptional colors of clean lavender with ruby-red edgings and the consistent ­spiraled flower-form can fill you with rapture. But true bliss cannot be achieved until you witness the abundance of large blooms and dark green disease-resistant foliage on each vigorous easy-to-grow plant.
