I bought Mr. Bluebird because it was a single, and purple, and small. It was all of the above except in the serious heat of summer it turned pink, then white. It still bloomed on valiently. The plant is not small; it is a decent size even though I have been giving away cuttings. Foliage is small and there must be some moss rose in the background, as there is some mossing on it.
Mr. Bluebird is a rose with personality and I've enjoyed having it. It does not seem to have any fragrance, but I don't care.
