Shadows Will Fall

(Manx x Richard Taylor Yates) x (Inner Space). Sev. 6 - 6.5" fl. 26" sc. M 20 buds. Fertile both ways. These lavender rose double flowers have a distinctive darker purple eye and picotee edge. The purple eye extends out on the petal edges as a purple picotee, surrounded by a bubbly wire gold edge. At the center of the flower is a deep green throat. The doubling can vary, but in our garden it is most often a hose-in-hose double as pictured. The flowers are carried on nicely branched scapes. These are very formal and showy doubles
