>Reine Des Violettes


Today we have the first bloom of a Hybrid Perpetual rose I planted last July, Reine Des Violettes. It is quite a beauty and the fragrance is intoxicating. This is a thornless rose.
So, if you are looking for a “kid friendly” rose with knockout fragrance, Reine Des Violettes is for you!

I found an interesting article about this rose by Paul Barden that was helpful to me. Click here to read it.
