Dark Desire (Kortiagraf) - Part of the new Parfuma collection by Kordes. This beautiful, sensuous rose is everything you could want in a Hybrid Tea. From buds that are almost black, the cupped flowers emerge with a unique violet-red, before maturing into blooms that display a spectrum of colour from red to violet purple, to even darker hues. The sophisticated, sensual fragrance of floral and fruity aspects enhance this very desirable rose. The glossy green foliage has exceptional disease resistance, proven by its prestigious ADR award in 2014. Neat bushy habit to 1.2m tall.
