Weeks Roses LogoAARS WinnerPortland's Best Rose Award
Up we go...into a wild new style of rose! You’ll be ridin’ high over the saturated scent, bold new-fangled colors & camellia-like form. The first lavender-toned rose to take the AARS award in over 20 years, clusters of ruffled ruby-red-purple blossoms give a great show of distinct lavender ‘eyes’. Clean deep green leaves make this vigorous Grandiflora a mean bouquet machine for the garden.
