Description / Purple Tiger Floribunda Rose

The ideal rose for just about anywhere in the garden or container, Purple Tiger is a charmer with an old rose fragrance, eye-catching purple and white blooms, and a neat, compact habit. Whether you place it front and center in an accent planting, line it along the front of the rose border, or set it in a fine pot on the patio, Purple Tiger will steal the show all summer long.

This floribunda takes its job of flowering very seriously, beginning with the first hint of summer heat and continuing until the autumn air is chilly. It blooms in waves, with large clusters of fat, pointed buds arising every few weeks all summer long. You will seldom be out of bloom (or scent) with Purple Tiger on the prowl.

Each flower is fully double, packed with up to 25 petals, and high-centered, opening slowly with elegantly recurved petal tips and a different pattern of purple, mauve, and white on every bloom. The magnificent antique-rose scent will carry you back to the rose gardens of your childhood and will dominate surrounding fragrances in the garden effortlessly.

Bred by noted rosarian Jack Christensen and introduced by us in 1991, Purple Tiger has an interesting parentage. The seed parent is Intrigue, the classic Bill Warriner floribunda bred right here at Jackson & Perkins back in 1982. The pollen parent is a miniature rose, the delightful Pinstripe™ from Ralph S. Moore. With these ancestors, you might expect Purple Tiger to be compact, and it is: this shrub reaches only 2 feet high and spreads about 2 feet wide. Small enough for your best containers, but large enough to make a big impact in any setting.
