Need a Nice Purple Rose
I am growing a new Austin rose called Grace for Mrs. Cleanleaf; She absolutley loves this rose. I do not believe this will be an exhibition rose as it does not appear to push long stems but she is a vigorous bloomer. The blooms are a lovely apricot color, the foilage a lovely shade of green not very big. Very enjoyable looking at this rose on our deck.
Mrs. Cleanleaf has informed me that she would like to find a deep purple rose (no red, no crimson,whatsoever) to situate alongside Grace. I saw a nice floribunda the other day at a nursery called Intrigue...Very nice fragrance, nice purple color. HOw big will this rose get? Dont want to overshadow Grace.
Can I get a few recomendations on other nice deep purple roses?
