The blooms are a novel color for a hybrid tea - a lovely shade of purple lavender that lightens toward the petal edges yet holds strong until the end of the line. Presented one to a stem, the flowers are perfect for cutting so you can add a splash of strong, fruit and spice fragrance wherever you desire. Upright and bushy, these plants have glorious, green foliage with built-in disease resistance that shrugs off powdery mildew and rust with ease. It'll perform best in hot dry climates.

||Roses bloom the best in full sun. Choose a location with at least 6 hours of sun per day. Morning sun is more kind to the plant.
||Rich, sandy loam is the preferred soil for roses. Amend difficult soils with humus, or consider building up the beds to ensure good drainage. Roses will not tolerate soggy, wet roots. Provide a slow, deep soaking with each irrigation. Sandy soils require more watering than clay soils. Hot temperatures should prompt more frequent irrigation. Only wet the foliage in very early morning hours.
