The spring bloom is quite beautiful, on the highly sought after blue side of lavender. The summer blooms are awful, tiny blooms on ugly tight clusters, fried quickly, with the unattractive thin pointy petals that hybridizes worked so hard to breed out of miniature roses. It is healthy,, but who needs disease resistance when the plant is so ugly, I’d rather it commit rose suicide. I find Love Song, a similarly colored blue-lavender to be far superior in every respect. I will be finding a new home for Poseidon, either in someone else’s garden or in the landscape recycling bin.

Edited: Four years later, Poseidon has redeemed himself and proved me wrong. The plant has grown big and lush, and is loaded with beautiful blooms of a very sought-after soft grey-blue lavender. The heat resistance has improved as the big established bush can now support the blooms better . Every aspect of this variety has improved with age, the flower quality and quantity , how long it lasts. Highly recommended.

Hi I am in Austin texas, what would you recommend for similar rose to Poseidon. Where did you find love song as a violet rose to plant in our texas extreme heat at times?

I’d recommend Love Song, you can purchase it online at Regan Nursery and elsewhere. Sometimes local nurseries will carry it in the spring. Violet’s Pride also does well in our hot summers, but is less ‘blue’ than Poseidon or Love Song.
