‘Lavaglut’ – Floribunda – Kordes Rose

We love the red cluster of blooms on our shrubs of Lavaglut. It’s a great garden and exhibition rose having won us King of Show last year at the Birmingham Rose Show. The blooms also hold up well as cut flowers.

  3. I have just started in to roses with a bent toward those that are lavender and scented. It is a little more challenging than I thought, but I am just now starting to get the hang of it. I look forward to any information that I can gather from your posts. Information on new additions-options is always appreciated. Thank you.


    • Thanks Charlie. Lavender roses are great. A few new ones out this year are “Love Song” by weeks roses and “Posiedon”, both are floribunda varieties. I appreciate your comments.
