Comments Nearly mauve petals fade toward silver as they unfurl around a high-centered bud. The cool effect is very distinguished - or if you are a fan of black-raspberry icecream, very delicious. Few roses manage to approach this levels of "blueness." The blossom is complemented well by the foliage. And as one would expect from a rose of this color the fragrance is intoxicating.
