We love this beautiful rose, first because of its brilliant color, and second because it's so intesely fragrant you don't have to see it to know it's in the room. Huge blooms of pure grape juice purple are borne on tall, stiffly upright plants covered with very dark green leathery foliage. Like most lavender roses it's quite hardy and disease resistant and occasionally makes its way onto the show table. Flower Size: 5-7". Fragrance: Strong, sweet rose. Hybridizer: Pat Stephens, 1986.

    The roses arrived too early to plant in the Northeast, not to mention the 100+ inches of snow we had. I kept them damp and they all survived, very hardy, and impressed with quality of all roses I ordered. This particular rose grew very well for the first year and produced beautiful deep mauve/red single roses. They required the least amount of attention, consistently bloomed throughout first year, others died unfortunately. As of this spring, sure enough it is the one already with strong new sprouts -I haven't even started to work the garden because temps are falling below freezing (May), although the new growth on this rose is still surviving-amazing! It has proven to be extremely hardy and overall one of my favorites for color, size, and use for arrangements in home. Doesn't disappoint!

    Not all Hybrid Tea roses are lightweights in the upper Midwest - 'Big Purple' is indeed big and purple, for me a medium to deep mauve, completely disease resistant AND (unlike some supposedly hardier Shrub roses) survived the Polar Vortex here in Chicagoland unprotected. I’m intentionally lazy with Roses – don’t cone or mound – if it doesn’t make it I chuck it and never grow it again, and I don’t like to spray. More gardeners in our challenging climate should grow this one - a rugged performer, striking good looks, and fragrant to boot!
