Why am I eager to try this particular rose? First off, the color. Dark, velvety flowers like this blend well with the blues, purples, and whites I fill my garden with. I can just imagine how this plant would look tucked in among lavender, ‘Rozanne’ perennial geranium, and white veronica.
But the plant hosts more than just pretty flowers. It offers excellent disease resistance (which is important to me because I don’t spray my garden with traditional or organic products), a nice rounded habit (usually about 3 feet tall and 2½ feet wide), and a warm, rich scent.
