'Veilchenblau' Rose. Vigorous "rambler rose" (Group 2, for pruning) will grow 8-10' in a season. Blooms on OLD wood, so important to prune every year, after flowering (follow Group 2 Rambler Rose pruning instrux). Rose is covered with hundreds of intoxicatingly fragrant flowers (orange-blossom scent), and it will even bloom in partly-shaded areas. Almost thornless. Veilchenblau ("veil of blue" in German) - a thornless, shade-tolerant purplish-maroon rose with incredible fragrance.
