Heady fragrance, a delightful mix of spicy cloves and sweet tea rose, attracts you to this shrub even before you can see the lavish bloom clusters in myriad shades of blue: plum, purple, lavender and magenta. The constantly changing colours provide a new display each day, and are even more stunning when set off by a complementary yellow rose. Vibrant blooms are showcased against medium green foliage on a vigorous, upright plant. Because of its exceptional disease resistance, little maintenance is necessary – a great choice for the first-time rose grower. Plant this along a property line for a gorgeous friendly fence, or en masse in a featured spot in your landscape. Rosa 'WEKstephitsu' PP13449
