Diamond Eyes™

Mysteriously novel black-purple…that alone draws some attention. But wait until you get a whiff of the strong clove spice perfume. That's a killer combo that will seduce even regular rose lovers to try this little gem. Her sparkling white 'eye' lights up each velvety blossom, making the unique color illuminate against the ackground of glossy green leaves. Tucks easily into any landscape…but also makes a striking conversation piece in a decorative pot or as an 18" tree. Darkens up in cooler conditions.
