I am on the hunt for a deep, purple coloured rose, ideally a climbing plant.
Can an anyone advise where I can purchase one from?
I've got a Veilchenblau rambling rose which is a beautiful purple colour - bought it as a bare root last winter and it's growing well and just started to flower.
I am after something like the picture posted above. That colour and flower type.
Cant' see the picture Rubi.
Thanks geum keenbutgreen. That's a lovely plant.
But I want a rose that has layers of petals (not sure what the official word for that is) like a hybrid
If you copy and paste this in to a web browser it should bring up the pic.
Rubi, I'm afraid that picture has been highly photoshopped! If you look at the left-hand side Amazon site below you will see that the colour is really pink. Besides, the seller who is probably in China, is offering seeds, which will probably never come to anything! See also the the bad reviews.

How about Cardinal de Richelieu? Not a climbing rose but it's a really pretty purple rose
