It is the time for the Roses to shine and boy are they putting on a display worth sniffing out at the moment. We have picked out some perfumed purple pleasures for you to pass your nose over:
Purple Tiger. An unusual or novelty rose with semi double flowers which are mauve and white striped (hence the name tiger) and flecked markings making it quite unique. A floribunda rose which flowers in profusion from late spring to early autumn. In addition, blooms are scented.
Roseraie de ‘Hay. Fantastic scent from large double rich purple / red flowers with pronounced yellow stamens.
Eyes for You. Delightful large flowers of lilac and purple with a deep purple eye and a citrus scent to boot (IMAGE)
Charles de Mills. Very fragrant, fully double purple flowers with crimson highlights.
