Tuscany Superb

Large semi-double 5" blooms (petals 24+) whose color is a lovely deep crimson purple. The petals have a velvet texture and are accented rich golden yellow stamens produced on a once blooming nearly thorn-less plant. Superbly fragrant. Densely foliaged. It is at its best in the spring. Its blooms look unreal, like they are made of the finest porcelain.

Beautiful Velvety FlowersReview by Marianne
This once blooming bush has lovely velvety looking flowers and beautiful foliage - with hints of red in the leaves and stems. I may plant this variety again in my parkway (I live in the city of Chicago). It would be perfect to fill in that space because Tuscany Superb does love to sucker - sometimes quite far from the bush - it's a bit invasive when it's happy. I actually dug this bush up (it was 5 years old) this spring because it was in a spot that I didn't want it to spread all over. 3 months later and I'm still digging up Tuscany Superb all over that garden. I did read that you have to pull off all the leaves in winter to get it to bloom. It bloomed profusely once I started doing that. This bush has green leaves well through the winter in Chicago.
