Rose 'Rhapsody In Blue'

'Rhapsody In Blue'

When working out in the garden the gardeners can often be questioned about the plants that are out in flower. One such plant causing quite a stir at the moment in the floribunda rose 'Rhapsody In Blue'. This rose has been flowering since the beginning of June and will continue to due so, with regular dead heading, throughout the summer months.   

On each stem are large clusters of sweet scented, semi-double flowers that seem to change colour as they mature, purple, mauve and the blue(ish) for which it got its name. Rose of the Year in 2003 (Floribunda) and given an Award of Garden Merit (AGM) in 2012, this rose is a favourite amongst the gardeners and, it would seem, the visitors to the gardens too. Highly recommended, this rose would be a worthy addition to any garden.
