The perfect gift rose for any occasion or for that all important '45th Sapphire Wedding Anniversary'.ROSE OF THE YEAR 2003A fascinating colour for a rose. Blue-purple blooms fading to a purple slate-grey as they mature. Officially classed as a Floribunda, but can also be grown as a small Patio Climber. Good long flowering period. A very versatile rose which looks certain to become a great favourite with rose lovers. Flower arrangers will love this one for its fascinating colour. Highly recommended. Wonderful perfume.
