Bull's Eye
Twilight Zone
(cv. WEKebtidere, S156-4) PPAF
Take the amethyst purple color and powerful perfume of Ebb Tide and make it a bigger flower with a stronger plant. That was our goal and here’s the proof. Big fat buds open to very double old-fashioned flowers of deep velvet purple overlaid with a wisp of smoke…a purple haze for the garden. Strongly scented with a combination of clove and lemony citrus blossom. Deep green leaves cover the plant & compliment the remarkably colored flowers. Tempting color, seductive fragrance and old rose form makes this a real winner!
