This "Rose of a different Color" is wonderful for any landscape design, including shrub roses, or specimen planting.

It has a short, compact, bushy growth habit, making hedges ideal for this rose.

It's easy to pick a bouquet of these beauties, because one snip produces a bouquet. The intense, clove fragrance will have you wanting to pick lots of bouquets!Not to mention the fact that it has very few thorns! (prickles) It is nearly thorn-less!

The bright green foliage is a nice contrast to the royal purple flowers with golden stamens. The blooms are just beginning to open in the picture above, but if you look closely, you will see that the entire hedge is completely covered with buds, and when they open, it will be spectacular.

The name, Midnight Blue, fits this rose perfectly. A few of these purple roses in the garden could really make a statement.
