Neptune™

Can an aquatic divinity enjoy fragrance? If so, Neptune would surely be spirited away after one sniff of his very own new rose. You’ll idolize the big blossoms of luscious lavender tinged with just a touch of purple. Certain to garner awards, the abundant blooms arrive on a praise-worthy plant with large glossy green leaves, good vigor and strong vitality. It’s no myth, just take a whiff! Best bloom size in cooler temps.
