This is quite a special and unusual rose I spotted at Ludwig’s rose farm. She is not quite my style in terms of what I like in a cut flower (I grow my roses mainly for bouquets) so I did not get the plant. But she looks quite dramatic and unusual with the purple centre.
I love how the picture below in particular turned out. I may decide to print it on canvas.
The bees absolutely loved this rose. I think the “Eyes for You” Rose would be a great addition for a gardener who has trouble attracting pollinators to their yard. Rooftop gardens come to mind.
