 The cold arctic breeze is coming to your garden carrying with it tons of lilac pink blossoms of the Arctic Blue rose. The cool tones are chilled by the unique lavender blue finish and iced with a cream color on the reverse of the petals, refreshing for a hot summer day. The very shapely flower buds open slowly, as if they were frozen in time at their most beautiful stage for longer enjoyment; the blooms are attractive to the very end when the opened flowers let go of their petals, showering the ground in iced lavender blue snow. Don't expect spring to come too quickly as the vigorous plant is dressed with glossy green winter jacket leaves, isolating and protecting the upright bush from mother nature's diseases, allowing the plant to produce a nonstop snow storm of flowers.

 Arctic Blue has fully double, lilac pink blooms with a creamy white reverse. Its unique flowers contrast with its medium green foliage. Blooming in clusters, Arctic Blue grows medium sized flowers which bear 35 to 40 petals each. Grows upright and spreads 3 to 4 ft. This floribunda is tall and can reach a height of 4 to 5 ft. Can be used for beds and borders or cut flower.  Drought resistant.
