The Lavender Lace miniature rose has clear lavender blooms that are very fragrant.
As the name suggests, Lavender Lace mini rose is a soft lavender color, with lots of frilly petals. This mini rose has classic Hybrid tea form flowers that are double when they first open, then when fully open,become lovely florets that show yellow stamens.
The purple roses are borne in trusses (in small clusters), with a strong, sweet, (fruity) fragrance.
The blooms on the Lavender Lace rose sometimes open to fast, and lose form and substance quickly. By planting this miniature rose plant in a bit of shade would help to solve this problem. The strong sun, simply progresses the blooms too quickly.
