The spring flush is wonderful. Blueberry Hill has rust every summer and anthracnose. The budded plant has rose mosaic virus, appalling in a newly released patented rose. Mauve roses rarely fail to disappoint.

Mauve and purple roses are almost always guaranteed to disappoint. I've yet to meet one that didn't leave me disappointed.

Try a mossed rose like William Lobb. Never disappoints one. Or Erinnerung an Brod... Maybe Veilchenblau.

Rhapsody in Blue does well in my garden, and Blue for You in my sister's garden (both zone 9b). But I'm gradually moving to the view that the colour of RIB is a bit harsh among my heritage roses.

I would definitely have to second what Jay-Jay says adding 'Bleu Magenta', 'Zigeunerknabe' and 'Baby Faurax' to the list. These roses in my garden have some of the bluest tints I have yet to see in a rose flower.
In my experience roses like 'Blue for You' or 'Blue Moon' make lovely cut flower but the colour can be hard to place in the garden without the bush sticking out like a sore thumb.

How does it last in the vase? It looks so pretty. Does it like the heat?

How well does Blueberry Hill survive Zone 5b winters? With protection? Cane hardy? Crown hardy? I'm sure HMF users in colder climates are interested in the details.

In 5a it is snowline hardy so can benefit from some covering. Always vigorous in its return.
