Purple Tiger

The talent of Jack Christensen really shows through in this extremely novel beauty. Not just every flower, but every petal is a varying masterpiece of amazing purple, lavender & white stripes, streaks, flecks, dots & dashes. Plus there’s a powerful perfume of citrus blossom & rose. She’s a little fussy to grow as roses go. But each blossom will convince you to keep up the effort. Best flower size & purple color in cooler conditions.
