Mauve & mauve blend [m] blooms. Strong fragrance. Average diameter 3". Blooms in flushes throughout the season.

Habit: Upright growth habit.
Height of 24" to 30" (60 to 75 cm).

Growing: Used for cut flower. Zone 5 and higher. Heat tolerant. Prefers full sun. Requires winter protection if temperatures drop below freezing. Remove spent blooms to encourage re-bloom.

Expected another minature to melt in the heat, but not this one in her 2nd year. Very little rain, temps hi 90-100 and I get blooms that have strong 'old rose' scent. Not a fast grower, wish she was so I didn't have to stoop to catch her scent.
