Cecil Porter of Murietta, CA. is at the top of his game. Can’t you smell the heady perfume of this rose? Don’t you want to reach out and feel it’s velvety petals? Don’t you wish there was a rose of this intense color in real life? I tell you what… if there was a type of rose that you could purchase with this same voluptuousness and incredible color – I would buy a whole load of these rose bushes! The small veins that run in the petals are so life-like. The colors are beautifully blended – the purple is just enough and perfectly tips each petal.
