If you’re a fan of purple blooms, then ‘Quicksilver’ is the perfect rose for you. It’s a well-behaved climber that can grow up to 7 feet tall, making it an excellent choice for trellises or obelisks. This rose variety produces gorgeous English-style double blooms all summer long without any breaks. The buds start off pink, but once they open up, they reveal mauve centers with outer petals in a silvery lavender shade. The plant itself is lush and full, with rich green foliage that is resistant to disease. To allow the rose to reach its maximum potential, avoid pruning it for the first three years, unless you notice diseased or damaged canes. The blooms of ‘Quicksilver’ are incredibly long-lasting, both on the bush and in a vase. Plus, they have a mild fruity fragrance that’s delightful. For a stunning display of purple flowers, plant spire-like delphiniums and salvia on each side of ‘Quicksilver.’
The rose named ‘Easy on the Eyes’ is a hassle-free plant that boasts of a unique orchid purple hue. It adds months of charm to your garden without requiring much effort. This particular rose belongs to Weeks Roses’ collection called ‘Easy to Love,’ created especially for new gardeners who want fuss-free plants. Although low maintenance, it is not an ordinary plant with its distinctive color and deep purple center along with a golden eye. The stamens are easily accessible to pollinators, which makes this a perfect addition to a butterfly garden. The semi-double flowers grow on a neat, rounded shrub, and they have an alluring fragrance of citrus and spice. ‘Easy on the Eyes’ is suitable for patios and mixed beds alike. Without needing a green thumb, you can plant it and appreciate its beauty all summer long.
Introducing the ‘Reine des Violettes’, a versatile climbing rose that is thorn-free. This particular type of Old Garden Rose was first introduced in 1860 and is also known as the “Queen of the Violets”. As a hybrid perpetual climber, it is well-known for its abundant blooms and flexibility. One of the major benefits of ‘Reine’ is its nearly thorn-free canes, which makes training it up a support an easy task. Its quartered blooms are packed with petals in a lovely lilac-pink hue and give off a delightful old rose fragrance with a peppery touch. Although this variety of rose blooms repeatedly throughout the season, deadheading is recommended to encourage new growth. ‘Reine’ can tolerate some shade and requires regular fertilization to maintain its beauty. Its foliage is a stunning gray-green shade, making it a charming plant even when not in bloom. Additionally, if vertical training is not your preference, ‘Reine’ responds well to “pegging”. Simply bend its arched canes and affix them to the ground to promote even more robust flowering.
The rose known as ‘Blue for You’ is a sturdy and prolific plant that produces semi-double blooms in shades of magenta, lilac pink, and plum, all accented by a bright white center. These colors will shift and change with the weather throughout the growing season, providing an ever-evolving display in your garden. Not only is ‘Blue for You’ beautiful, but it is also incredibly hardy and healthy, producing clusters of flowers from spring until the first frost. This rose has a delightful scent reminiscent of candied apples and clove and is capable of thriving even in hot temperatures. To add some extra contrast to your garden, try pairing ‘Blue for You’ with a taller climber in a pale lemon shade like ‘Teasing Georgia’, or keep things simple by pairing it with a vibrant yellow sedum.
The rose variety called ‘Blue Moon’ boasts a lovely lilac lavender hue and emits a grapefruit scent that is simply divine. While it may seem puzzling to have blue in its name, it’s common for roses with cooler purple shades to be given such monikers. As a recipient of a gold medal, this rose’s fragrance is sweet and reminiscent of the citrus fruit. Its upright growth habit adds to its appeal and it thrives best in dappled shade. It’s advisable to provide shelter from the hot sun which can damage its delicate petals and affect its color. For those who adore silver-toned purples, ‘Blue Moon’ is an excellent choice.
The ‘Purple Tiger’ floribunda rose is a stunningly beautiful flower that I wish I could grow in my own warm winters. This rose is hardy to zone 6 and features unique double blooms that are dark violet and raspberry striped in white, making each flower an individual work of art. The rose also has an appealing old rose perfume and blooms repeatedly from spring through frost. While ‘Purple Tiger’ is compact enough for containers, it does require a bit of pampering due to its diva attitude; it is slightly prone to black spot and powdery mildew, so it is not recommended for humid areas. To ensure optimal health, it is best to prune this rose in a vase shape to allow for maximum air circulation through the center and always water at the base rather than on the foliage to avoid fungal disease. With some tender loving care, ‘Purple Tiger’ will be a showstopper in your garden that visitors will admire for years to come.
The ‘Indigo’ rose is an exquisite heirloom that emanates a delightful fragrance and has a captivating appearance. This lovely rose displays blackberry-violet hues with fluffy and charming blooms, accompanied by a button eye. First introduced prior to 1845, ‘Indigo’ belongs to the Portland Rose family, known for its compactness, short stems, and versatility in gardens. The damask rose perfume scent of this rose is heavenly, making it an excellent choice for bouquets due to its antique look. The fresh green foliage complements the rich purple color of the flowers beautifully. If you intend to plant this rose, ensure it has ample space to spread out as it tends to widen via suckers, which can transform into new plants. You can transplant the sucker shoots or gift them to your friends if they appear where you don’t want them to grow. Overall, ‘Indigo’ is an exceptional rose with a unique and striking appearance that any gardener would love to have.
‘Pretty Polly Lavender’ is a tough and resilient polyantha rose that I absolutely love! It can withstand extreme temperatures as low as -25 ℉, making it an ideal addition to any garden. Polyantha roses are renowned for their abundance of small blooms and their ability to function as low-lying groundcovers. The bush of ‘Pretty Polly Lavender’ produces clusters of charming pinkish lilac flowers that are exceptionally healthy. As a member of the Star Roses and Plants BloomablesⓇ series, this rose guarantees consistent color throughout the season. It works wonders in a small bed or as a ground cover in front of taller plants. You can even cut each spray to create a charming bouquet of pompon flowers. With a light fragrance and unwavering reliability, this lavender bloom powerhouse will thrive in any garden setting!
Have you heard of the award-winning mauve rose called ‘Love Song’? It’s a stunning flower with large ruffled blooms that are sure to catch your eye. While opinions differ on its scent, some describe it as having strong citrus notes while others detect mild sweet fragrances. Regardless, this healthy shrub boasts just the right shade of lavender that will appeal to anyone. If you’re planning on growing ‘Love Song’, it’s best to do so in cooler temperatures during spring and fall. This is when the plant produces its largest and most beautiful flowers. Though flowers may be slightly smaller in dry heat, they can still withstand scorching sun and maintain their gorgeous color.
If you’re looking for a small and resilient miniature rose with delightful lilac blossoms, then ‘Life’s Little Pleasures’ is a great choice. It’s perfect for creating petite bouquets!
