The Sweet Intoxication rose is just as the name applies; A very sweet rose with an intoxicating fragrance! The rich, mauve/purple color has a lavender reverse.
These lovely Floribunda roses begin with pointed, ovoid buds that open to a richly colored, high centered, double bloom that measures 4" across.
The open flowers have a white center that show off golden stamens. The beautiful flowers are produced non stop all season, like most Floribundas, in small clusters.
And if the lovely blooms on the Sweet Intoxication rose aren't enough to wow you, the fragrance sure will! The strong clove scent from this rose will fill your garden.

Just take a look at all the perfect blooms on this rose!
This 'intoxicating' rose grows upright, in a columnar fashion, making it an idea rose to tuck in a spot where a larger rose might need more room.
If you have room beside that fountain or hedge, or even a seating area that could use 'one more rose', I suggest you take another look at this amazing rose bush! Especially if you have an area that could benefit from the strong, intoxicating fragrance of this rose!
It would also make a nice rose for a Hedge. I think it goes without saying that this is the perfect rose for cutting! It will make a stunning (and fragrant) bouquet of roses for the vase.
Sweet Intoxication is vigorous growing, very floriferous, and disease resistant; what more could you want from a rose?
It is a continual bloomer, that will keep the flowers coming until late in the fall.
