Rose Rhapsody in Blue
Roses in our garden can be a hit or a miss, some get too leggy, others may be a bit disappointing in flowering while others can be truly sensational.
One of the best we have planted in recent years is the Floribunda rose of the year 2003 Rhapsody in Blue.
This one seems to love our cooler climate here in the north east of Scotland. Absolutely smothered in clusters of scented flowers early till mid summer and buds starting to open again for an early Autumn show.
Colour is a very striking deep mauve fading to what is said to be the closest yet to blue. This very striking rose can look it’s best in the informality of the mixed border.
Hardiness – Fully hardy
Height – 3ft
