Description of Veilchenblau Roses:
This vigorous, medium-large sized, almost thornless multiflora rambler has a simple, pretty display of clusters of inch-wide, purple-violet flowers with white centres and the yellow pollen exposed. The scent is very good, with a hint of orange. Veilchenblau is the closest to blue of the rambling roses. It is also called 'Blue Rambler', 'Blue Rosalie' and 'Violet Blue'.
This rose is highly recommended for growing in light, dappled shade or against a wall that only receives sun for half the day. It is ideal for scrambling up a tree or pillar.
This variety was bred by Johann Christoph Schmidt, Germany, 1909 from 'Crimson Rambler' and 'Erinnerung an Brod'.
