The Intrigue Rose bears deep purple roses that are very fragrant Floribunda roses.

The color, and fragrance are quite intriguing, as is the plant itself. It grows compact, low-growing,and is great for edging.

The deep purple-red buds on this rose open to reveal velvety plum flowers, with a strong, old rose fragrance.

Awards

AARS (All-American Rose Selections)1984


This rose 'Intrigue' is popular in the warmer climates because of it's great heat tolerance.

The round flower buds begin deep purple, and open to 3" double blooms with 20-30 petals of a mauve/plum color. The flowers are set off by the lovely dark green foliage.

Flowers are borne mostly in clusters, and as like most Floribunda Roses You can pick a bouquet with a single stem. You'll find from 5-15 roses on a single stem. And it is a very fragrant bouquet!

The fragrance is that of Old Rose mixed with Citrus. (Heavenly) The ruffled blooms of this Floribunda, grow on long stems, making it a good rose for cutting.

The purple roses are a most unusual color for Floribunda's, and a nice addition to your garden.

The rosebush has good mid-season bloom, with good repeat.

The bush is a vigorous grower, and mostly hardy. Some information I have says it is hardy zones 6-10, other references say zones 5-10.

A very good rose for the garden, and the vase.
