An earlier post by Fredriik says that "I grow this one in Sweden". It states that the rose did very well in a cold winter minus 25-26 degrees. HMF has it as Zone 6b and warmer. Should a change be made to the Zone posted?

Has anyone grown this with its parent veilchenblau? If so, how close is the color? Is it really just as described, a repeating veilchenblau or was there some color sacrifice (ie. more pink\red) for the repeat blooming trait?

I'm interested to know, too. I'm sure that it takes a few years to achieve its color though. Veilchenblau, and its offspring like Bleu Magenta, Violette, and Rosemarie Viaud all take a few years to settle before their blue colors really show up. Before that they are quite pink.

Thank you. I've added the award. Perhaps Admin will add the date? My computer does not obey me when I sometimes try to add a date.

I grow this one in Sweden. The winter of 09/10 was extremely cold with minus 25-26 degrees for at least two weeks. Perennial blue did very well despite this. Completely unprotected, there was only very little that had to be cut back. Seems like a tough one.
