Purple Heart™
(cv. WEKbipuhit) ● Pat.#11,513
Weeks Roses Logo
The luscious wine-red color sometimes found in old roses plus a truly spicy clove fragrance make this ‘new-old’ rose a must-have. Very free-flowering yet rounded & contained in plant habit, Purple Heart will appeal both to the blossom-sniffing old rose lovers & to those who just love eye-catching color. The matte green leaves, novel color & fragrance all come from its species ancestor, Rosa californica.
