A Victorian favourite that will grace the back of a flower border and make a foil for pale flowers in the foreground is Reine des Violettes. It adds a new colour for it is deep purple on opening and later develops a pale violet hue. This unusual hybrid perpetual resembles the old French or gallica roses in form and colour, and like them has a very strong perfume. It is recurrent flowering and will give some fine autumn blooms. It is perhaps an acquired taste, but soon becomes a prime favourite.
