Paradise is a gorgeous lavender color that is very pure and clean. Definitely on the blue side of mauve like Blue Girl, but the blue color is very faint and reads as a bright white on first glance. The outer petal edges react to ultraviolet light from the sun by blushing a bright fuschia magenta color. In a greenhouse, protected from UV, the bloom is a solid lavender. Paradise is very unique and it grows well for a lot of people. It should be grown on its own roots if you live in a cold climate. It is quite cold hardy due to the influence of Rosa foetida bicolor in its ancestry. Hardy to zone 4 own roots, budded it is not reliably hardy.
