The fragrant plum rose is one of the most fragrant roses, and its color is that of a lovely mauve plum.
Fragrant plum is a very sweet-scented grandiflora rose bush.
It produces very large candleabra-like heads of blooms.
The are very double and high-centered, and last well with little fading of color either in the vase or on the bush.
The petal count is 20-25.
The stems are long enough to be a great cutting flower.
Fragrant plum's flower production is very high, so it's always in bloom.
It's not suited for very hot desert climates, because the lush new growth can burn on very hot days.
Fragrant plum grandflora is a modern, large-flowering bush that is also a good repeat-bloomer.
This rose should be growing in well-drained, rich soil and in full sun.
