Notes:
The name says it all - the color and fragrance or romance. A highly fragrant miniflora with clusters of very pale lavender buds that open to double white blossoms, with maybe a hint of lavender in the center. The flowers measure 2.5 to 3 inches across, so it will be a big hit in your neighborhood. This plant is an upright grower and has soft matte green foliage.
