Stainless Steel

Hybrid Tea - Silvery grey lavender

 

This "everyday" version of Sterling Silver is much easier to care for, much easier to grow and has much longer lasting flowers. Yet it still possesses the wonderful perfume and the mysterious pastel color that places its far-removed ancestor in rose history. The trophy hunters will go for the classic show form and the nice long stems. Deep green large leaves clothe the tall vigorous plant.
