We often get asked for Purple roses -
In New Zealand we have available:
Ocean Song which is light lavender,
Cool water which is more mauve and
a good laster, delilah which is again more mauve, but very pretty, and Blueboy.
The best purple rose, is not a rose at all!
We use purple eustoma or lisianthus,
which is that Pefect dark Cadbury purple
and looks like a ruffley double rose!
Lasts well and available from November
to May (N.Z.)
