Lavender Jewel Rose is a lavender-mauve colored miniature rose. The blossoms on these miniature roses are double with 38 petals. The soft lavender buds open to become pretty purple roses with very attractive magenta colored markings on the edge of the petals. The Lavender Jewel rose has pointed buds that become full, high centered, rounded blossoms. As the flowers open out, they start to fade to the palest violet at the edges.
You’ll get mid-season bloom that repeats well all season, on a rosebush that is usually disease free.
