Nice rose bush, great scent
Anna from TN wrote (October 23, 2016):
This rose has the best scent of all my roses. The blooms don't last long once cut, though. Otherwise, lilac/purple blooms with layers of flowers, dark green foliage, and nice mid-sized blooms.
love a first bud

Just bought this rose bush a few days ago. Already so in love with it. Has a wonderful fragrance and the buds open to reveal the prettiest flowers. Didn't realize it was thornless til I read a review here about it. Nor did I realize it was fragrant til I just happened to lean in close for a sniff. Boy was I wonderfully surprised!
large old-fashioned blooms

I planted this rose and a couple of months later it was blooming. This year it is 2 years old and already has several huge fragrant soft purple blooms on it. It is a really pretty rose with nice scent and a good producer all summer. I really like this rose!
Highly Satisfactory and Beautiful!

I've been growing roses for over 35 years - and this is one of my favorites. Besides the fact it's thornless, it's beautiful - from bud to full-blown. It's right outside my kitchen nook window, and during the summer to late fall, guests rave about it - Dislikes? I can't think of any - other than I never get to keep any of the cut roses - they always go off with happy guests! The rose seems to be oblivious to bugs! A simple pruning in late winter and we're ready for another season of compliments and beautiful roses. I originally bought it because I love the smell of old fashioned roses outside my windows - it's beauty was a bonus!

What to Expect
Container roses should typically be planted in late spring and fall. They’re easy to plant (all you need is a trowel), and they provide instant gratification, as they aren’t dormant and will have buds within a few short weeks, if they don’t when they arrive. They’re also perfect for transplanting into containers and make an attractive gift.

Container roses are usually nicely leafed out, and may even have flowers on them, which is a great way for you to know when you purchase them what they’re going to look and smell like.

Container-Grown Rose Instructions
  • When your roses arrive, water them thoroughly.
  • Choose a well-drained location that recieves at least 4 to 6 hours of direct sun each day. Dig a hole at least twice the size of the rootball. Mix the native soil with compost or other organic material and add superphosphates.
  • Gently loosen the rootball, place it into the hole so that the bud union sits 1 to 2 inches below soil level, and fill the hole with the remaining soil.
  • Water thoroughly, then mulch heavily around the base for winter protection. Your roses will arrive lightly pruned, so it is not imperative that you do any additional pruning before winter.
