I am planning to order a few lavender roses this season and looking for some advice or recommendations. I have so far only Arborose Quicksilver in this color and not very happy with this rose. Under the sun this rose is loosing the color very fast and not keeping the flower for a long time.
I have ordered Love Song and looking at Blue Girl (Sauvageot, 2008 ) and Novalis. How are they performing at sun? I have seen mixed reviews. Thanks!

I am surprised QS doesnt perform well for you as both mine have done extremely well in two different gardens in Cincinnati and NKY. Perhaps yours is still young?
Others in this general colour range that are excellent for me here are Poseidon and Plum Perfect. Lavender Crush is a beauty with a divine scent, but requires a lot of care for BS. The same goes for Violets Pride. If you have space for another climber, but with small flowers please consider the charming and constantly blooming Purple Skyliner.

Vaporvac, thank you so much for the suggestions! Poseidon/Novalis is back to my list. You are right, QC is still young, Hope will take our heat better with age.
