It has a slight scent Lainey...have to stick me nose right in it though (bit dodgy when there’s a bee in there! 👃🏼🐝) though I do have a rubbish sense of smell @wagsmomthompsonbtinternetcom

I bought one of these a couple of months ago. It stopped me dead in a garden centre and I just had to buy it. Only popped in for some potting compost!

I’m not surprised! It’s an amazing colour! I bought mine online having actually never seeing it in real life...wasn’t sure when it first flowered, but I love it! @ericplummer

I see a little silhouette of a man...scaramouche, scaramouche...🎶 oops! Wrong rhapsody! Turning up fashionably late for rose day...but I’ll forgive her because she is an absolute stunner 💜 and I’m ever so cited to see loads of buds on her too 💜🌸💜 #rhapsodyinblue
