  Prickles's Veilchenblau x 1 Blooming

Plant: Rose (Rosa) | Variety: Veilchenblau

  • 2
  • Happy

Classed as a rambler rather than a climber, by Schmidt (1909). Almost thornless, up to 4m. Once flowering (spring). As the name suggests the colour is violet/blue, though blue is stretching it a bit far but still a difficult colour to describe.

Parentage: ‘Crimson Rambler’ x ‘Errinerung an Brod’.

Prickles's Veilchenblau Care Instructions

Try for a seed spacing of at approx. 3.96 feet (1.22 metres) and sow at a depth of around 0.25 inches (0.64 cm) if planning to sow direct.

Rose 'Veilchenblau' normally grows to a mature height of 2.00 metres (that's 6.50 feet imperial) so ensure you have enough space in your garden for this plant.

Your garden has dappled sun light - a partial sun position will ensure your plant thrives.

Your garden has combination soil: planting in loam soil will ensure your plant thrives.

Remember to water moderately.

Your garden's USDA Hardiness Zone (9b) is within the ideal range for Rose 'Veilchenblau'. The recommended range is between Zone 5 and 9.

Try to keep the ph of your soil between the range of 4.5 and 8.0 as Rose 'Veilchenblau' likes to be in acidic to alkaline soil.
