Rose Of The Week
EYES FOR YOU
Floribunda 2008 2ft 6ins
A lovely but very unusual rose.
A floribunda with large blooms which can be as big as 4ins across. The colour is described as mauvy-lilac but the main eye catcher is the large purple blotch in the centre.
The huge blooms repeat all summer and really stand out in the crowd.
The foliage is very healthy with good disease resistance.
Not very tall so will grow in a container or the garden.
A bed of these eye catchers will stop the traffic.
Bred by Peter J James. UK
Introduced by Warners Roses. Details of all our roses are available on our web site. Over 1000 varieties to choose from.
