Rosa For Your Eyes Only (= ‘Cheweyesup’)
It has long been the ambition of rose breeders to incorporate the dark eye of the wild Persian rose, which hails from Iran and Afghanistan, into a healthy garden rose. Decades of work have come to fruition with this new group of roses that exhibit the unusual dark eye. This has loose clusters of mauve-pink flowers with a darker central eye; in cool weather the flowers produced are of deeper shades. It makes a dense shrub that flowers through summer, well into autumn and has clean, disease-free foliage.
