PURPLE TIGER

Floribunda

Not just every flower, but every petal is a varying masterpiece
  •  Powerful old-rose fragrance.
  •  Suitable for zones 5 to 9.
  •  Quite small.

The talent of Jack Christensen really shows through in this extremely novel beauty. Not just every flower, but every petal is a varying masterpiece of amazing purple, lavender & white stripes, streaks, flecks, dots & dashes. Plus there's a powerful perfume of citrus blossom & rose. She's a little fussy to grow as roses go. But each blossom will convince you to keep up the effort. 

Each flower is fully double, packed with up to 40 petals, and high-centered, opening slowly with elegant petal tips and a different pattern of purple, mauve, and white on every bloom. This shrub reaches only 30 inches high, and spreads anywhere from 18 to 24 inches wide. Best flower size & purple color in cooler conditions.
