The Dark Lady

28.00

A dark, dusky crimson rose, with rather loosely formed flowers that open wide and hang elegantly. They have a special character of their own, which reminds us of the flowers of tree peonies, as sometimes seen on fabrics and wallpapers. It forms a shapely, spreading bush. The bush is small at first but over time becomes quite large, reaching a medium height. It bears attractive, large, dark green leaves which are rough in texture, resembling those of its Rosa rugosa parentage. There is a light Old Rose fragrance. This variety is particularly happy in Mediterranean-type climates and in the southern USA.  4 x 4ft. The name is taken from the mysterious Dark Lady of Shakespeare’s sonnets.
