Early Autumn in Melbourne is a wonderful time. We tend to get lovely warm days, fine weather and cool nights. The gardens are also looking good, with the rose bushes sending forth another round of blooms. Here is the "Vol de Nuit" rose growing in our garden.
The colour of "Vol de Nuit" is a clear deep mauve of a most attractive shade, and the form is particularly good with a high pointed centre and nicely reflexed petals. It is well suited for the show exhibitor and highly recommended for the home gardener. It is the leader of this colour group, and as a bonus it is very fragrant!
