Sophy's Rose

Photo of Rose Scarlet Knight Had I known that Sophy's rose would 'blue' so badly I'd have probably not bought it. But over its two seasons in the garden I've come to believe that this may be one of the best roses to grow in my garden.

The plants are extremely vigorous and well branched. They seem to be completely free of disease. And the flowers happen to be a color that mixes as well with oranges and washed out yellows as it does with pinks and whites. Long story short: it's a gem. ARS members rate it in the mid-eights.
