Wild Blue Yonder

Grandiflora - Ruffled red-purple with a lavender ‘eye'

 

2006 AARS winner.  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.
