The quest for a beautiful lavender rose blossom has been difficult. I've tried several and have been unhappy with strange coloring and easy bruising and marking. I finally found one I love! This is called Moon Shadow and is another Jackson and Perkins selection. I have it planted in an area where it is somewhat sheltered and receives both sunlight and shade at different parts of the day. I hope it continues to bloom so well as summer comes, as I would like to make a floral bouquet of Moon Shadow roses and lavender. Don't you think that would be pretty?


  1. Your roses are beautiful! I like the Diana and the lavender ones the best!

  2. One of the first roses I planted was a Moon Shadow. Sadly it is now gone. I am inspired to replace it. The picture is beautiful.
