I have to admit that I am fascinated by this rose. I have never seen a rosebush with roses this color. I was over to babysit my grandson and walked around my son's home to possibly find some picture taking material. After coming into his home, I excitedly mentioned to him, "son, did you know that you have a lavender rosebush on the side of your house"? He looked at me and said, "mom, I'm tired"! Well, okay then. I take he could have cared less about this lavender rose.
