Named for the Paris newspaper … Imagine a two and a half foot tall mound of smallish, dark green leaves smothered in two-inch, semi-double, bright dark blue-violet flowers that never stops blooming. This is what polyanthas were meant to look like… easily propagated from cuttings and grows very well on its own root… As with most violet roses, the color can vary in intensity depending on the heat, light, and feeding, but it is geneuinely one of the most perfect of the violet roses… This is the first of this group bred from an interesting mixture of modern hybrid teas, florbundas, and R. californica.
