Recommendation:
 

Comments Wavy mauve petals sport lilac highlights against dark green matt foliage. The whole effect is cool, spare, almost regal. It was a rose a quarter century before its time. Sadly, there is no fragrance. And it is susceptible to disease. Perhaps Shocking Blue is a better choice today.
