Rosa Purple Tiger

Rosa Purple Tiger

Heavenly Old-Rose Fragrance Fills Garden and Vase

What a great name for a rose! And what a dramatically colored bloom to live up to that unique name! Purple Tiger's dazzling blooms appear in flushes from early summer until frost (remove spend flowers to encourage rebloom), each one a rich shade of purple that's streaked and flecked with white. It's absolutely gorgeous, and its beauty doesn't stop with the visual appeal; this eye-catching floribunda also delights the nose with an antique rose fragrance.

Typically growing to a height of 2 feet, its matte green foliage is the perfect backdrop to the loosely semi-double purple and white blooms. It makes a stunning specimen planting or in small groups in borders, foundations, cottage gardens, or amidst your other roses.

Purple Tiger is best grown in medium-moisture, well-drained, loamy soil, preferably in full sun. Although it will handle some shade, its best disease resistance and flowering do occur in full sun.

Prune Purple Tiger in spring, removing old canes and dead or diseased wood and cutting back any canes that cross. Gardeners in warmer climates should cut back the remaining canes by about one third, and those in colder areas may need to prune a bit more. Purple Tiger does require spring freeze protection. If grown in a container, it will need winter protection.
