“Such a surprise! So fragrant! So velvety!” she said, transposed for a moment by the magic of the bouquet she had just received. “I’ll get a vase” and she took a clay pot from the cupboard. It was a floral-pattern amphora which looked just waiting to be filled with life and joy…
Such stories are written every day. Right now, as you’re trying to find out more about the Big Purple, somewhere someone is giving it to a loved one. Why would they? The reason lies in its large flowers, coloured in an unexpectedly beautiful purple-mauve, which bring joy to the viewer and will put an instant smile on their face, no matter what they were feeling before. A quarter of a second later the strong fragrance of its over 40 petal flowers will reach and mesmerize you.
Big Purple acts in many such scenes, flowering in waves all season long, from May to late autumn, while its long life-span in a vase makes it take the lead role, as the centrepiece in flower arrangements for different events. It’s helpful to know that the adult plant can grow up to 90-120 cm high. Famous Roses recommends it both for your garden and bouquets. We deliver it with bare roots and we guarantee their growth.
Quality 1+ (premium) Year 2 bushes, very sturdy, grafted on the best rootstock in the world right now, which gives the roses vigour and great resistance over time.
