Allure blooms with 5-7" flowers in unique, eye-catching, ever-changing colors, and it blooms as both a single and a double. The bush is a medium-size, upright grower and the flowers are presented upright. Allure is a prolific bloomer. It is the child of Misfire and Candy Manners. Released in 2005 from HVH.
