This highly elusive rose is rarely offered for sale, but it's well worth buying when it occasionally becomes available. The pretty combination of beige and lavender is unique. It's exceptionally short for a grandiflora, and I suspect it would be a much more vigorous rose if it were grafted. Unfortunately, it's almost always sold as an own-root plant.
