Lavender. Strong, citrus, rose fragrance. 17 to 25 petals. Average diameter 4.75". Large, double (17-25 petals), in small clusters, high-centered bloom form. Blooms in flushes throughout the season.
Medium, upright. Semi-glossy, medium green foliage.
Height of up to 6' (up to 185 cm).
USDA zone 6b through 9b (default). Can be used for beds and borders, garden or landscape. 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.
More tolerant to disease than most other lavender roses on the market today.
