USDA zone 5b and warmer.  Can be used for container rose, cut flower, exhibition or garden.  Vigorous.  Disease susceptibility: very disease resistant.  Remove spent blooms to encourage re-bloom.  Spring Pruning: Remove old canes and dead or diseased wood and cut back canes that cross. In warmer climates, cut back the remaining canes by about one-third. In colder areas, you'll probably find you'll have to prune a little more than that.  
Notes:
According to Tiny Petals Nursery Violet Mist is now classed as a Mini-Flora. 'Violet Mist' has pale lavender blooms that look fragile yet last for days. Slightly larger than most minis, the sweetheart blooms on long stems are somewhere between minis and floribundas.
