Soooo mysterious in its color...and sooo powerfully perfumed...it's certain to attract attention. Dusky deep purple buds swirl open to very double old-fashioned flowers of velvet plum washed with a haze of sultry smoke. The intense dove fragrance can nearly bowl you over. But keep your balance or you'll find yourself face down amongst the deep green leaves. Gets all the better with establishment. Photo and descriptor provided by Weeks Roses.
