ROSA 'Wekcryplag'(BLUEBERRY HILL™) PP10072
Loads of semi-double, lavender roses are the highlight of the floribunda rose, Blueberry Hill™. It produces many clusters of flowers throughout the growing season, with good care, and is somewhat resistant to blackspot and rust. This 1995 Weeks Rose introduction was hybridized by Thomas F. Carruth or Altadena, California.
This relatively hardy rose is a woody deciduous shrub with stems lined with sharp woody thorns. It has a bushy habit, semi-glossy compound leaves of medium green, and is everblooming. Its semi-double flowers have 12 to 16 petals and are soft lavender. They are borne in irregular clusters and have a light, fruity fragrance.
Roses prefer full to partial sun, moderate temperatures and perfectly drained, slightly acid soil with average to good fertility. They grow best in places with slightly dry climates, because such climates disfavor the fungal diseases that plague them. For this reason, it is important to maintain good airflow within and between planted roses through good planting and pruning practices which will dissuade fungal attacks. Roses are rife with pest and disease problems. Fortunately, new cultivars are bred to be disease resistant. This selection is somewhat tolerant of rust and powdery mildew.
Floribunda roses are a landscape must. They are perfect for sunny foundations, mixed borders and hedges. Especially pretty cultivars like this one.
