Moonlight Magic is a Hybrid Tea rose that bears the sweetest Lavender blossoms. It is one of the most fragrant of all the roses.

(But you won't find that information on the label) At best, the label says "Mild fragrance", but anyone that smells this rose knows otherwise!

A very sought-after, but sometimes hard to find rose. Learn more below:

Viewer Comments about this "Magic" rose

I bought this rose  very inexpensively at Walmart a couple of years ago to mark a beloved cat's grave. she loved flowers and spent a lot of time in the back yard smelling them. I do not have the best of green thumbs but the rose bloomed within 2 weeks and was the most beautiful in looks and smell of any rose I have ever seen
I have since moved and can not find this rose anywhere :Maureen

To answer Maureen's comment about not find this rose, I found it yesterday at a Sacramento Grocery Outlet to replace one that doesn't do well. The description on tag sounded nice but not as detailed as on this site.  My husband planted it right away, & today it's raining.  I'm looking forward to it blooming this spring!

Thanks for the update Dee! I hope it does well for you, oh, and by the way.......we will want to see pictures!

Do you grow this rose? Won't you share a picture and your experience with it? Share your rose
