This is a vigorous growing rosebush that loves full sun, and shows its gratitude with a bounty of Spring flowers, with good repeat,or give it a spot with a bit of shade, and it will still perform nicely for you!
The best blooms are produced with the first Spring flush, and again with the Fall peak season.
The flowers have long stems that arch under the weight of the heavy clusters of blooms.
The blooms open cupped, then become flat with muddled centers, that reflex as they open.
This is a strong growing, freely branching bush, with an open habit. The foliage is a bit sparse.
This rose is resistant to both Black Spot and Mildew.
Because of the unique mauve color of this rose, it would really stand out better in the garden if planted with blue flowered perennials, and silver colored foliage.
A purple smoke bush planted behind it would be a nice contrast
Lavender Lassie rose is a nice landscape rose, that also makes great cut flowers.
