Reine Des Violettes

Type: Hybrid Perpetuals

Fully double, old rose 4" blooms (petals 60+) which open flat and quartered are filled with velvety petals of rich, deep violet purple. Marvelous heady fragrance. Peter Beales says that this is his favorite of all the Hybrid Perpetuals. A large, upright repeat blooming bush with grey-green foliage. Virtually thorn-less. One of the most sought after old roses.

Most RequestedReview by Rosabunda
Of all the roses I have this one is most often requested as a cutting. I have been reluctant to do this because I actually want to move the bush. It is about 3 feet tall with wide arching canes. The area where it is planted has become shady over the years and it still blooms although the blooms are not a big. Sooo. This year I will move it and cut it back... I hope it does OK. I purchased this plant over 10 years ago as a bare root at a big box store. I was well aware of its magnificence and it has not disappointed. Pretty disease resistant and will take some shade. I live in Zone 8a on the eastern shore so it can take a little salt spray too. Yes the fragrance and magenta color are legendary! (Posted on 5/17/2018)
Super old rose, bequtiful blooms and great fragrance!!!Review by Gloria g
I had this rose at my previous house, it was disease free and bloomed beautifully year after year. I planted it over 25 years ago. Great fragrance and very showy blooms.I lived in Zone 18.

Hurry and cultivate new plants, I want one for the new house!!! (Posted on 1/26/2018)
