Comments In one package you can get a foliferous plant that flowers continuously, is powerfully and deliciously fragrant, and is completely trouble-free. Some sites proclaim it's a "true purple" rose; and under precisely the right conditions it might approach that. But in others it fades throug lilac almost to white. Fortunately many of the colors throught which it passes are attractive ones.
