This is a newly purchased rose, the color is a deep Magenta, with a beautiful scent.

This mini-flora is upright and vigorous, with disease-resistant medium green foliage. Each large, long-lasting exhibition bloom has it's own long stem.

Update 6/26/06 This little gem is still growing strong, I expected it to fizzle during our hot drought period, but it's still blooming!
