Comments The flowers of Dioressence are reliably lilac or mauve. The flower has a good high centered form, opening like a good floribunda with slightly wavy petals. There is a lore among rose growers that purplish roses are among the most fragrant. It is true of Lagerfeld, Angel Face, and Fragrant Plum. It is also true of Dioressence whose essence is of geranium or moss.
