Inspired by the indomitable spirit of Lady Violet, the Dowager Countess of Grantham from the runaway television series, Downton Abbey, this Rose has it all!

Elevate your landscape design with the impeccable style of Violet's Pride™ Rose Tree (Rosa 'WEKwibysicpep'). Our growing team has married the aristocratic Floribunda Rose onto a straight standard for a lush focal point you'll adore! Producing outstanding "best in show" blossoms on a vigorous, rounded bush, you'll love the double blooms in a saturated plum-lavender hue!

With a spiral form and up to 45 petals per bloom, these showy blooms are lavender with a magenta heart on the inner petals. A very sophisticated grapefruit and fruit-like fragrance further enhance the overall visual appeal. The scent is heavenly and the blooms last and last!

The gorgeous green foliage is dense and lush all growing season. The greenery is the perfect foil for the gorgeous blooms that follow! With just a bit of deadheading or cut flower gathering, you'll enjoy bloom after rebloom until fall! The prolific flowering display starts as elegant pointed buds open into "Best in Show" blossoms held in small clusters.

Gorgeous flowers, wonderful scent, improved disease resistance, and easy care maintenance! Hardy throughout USDA growing zones 5 through 9, Violet's Pride™ grows to a 3-4 foot tall rounded shrub that spreads just 2-3 feet wide and its grafted height on its Rose standard brings it closer to 5-7 feet in height. Disease resistant and seldom damaged by deer or rabbits, you'll enjoy an easy-care, brilliant, free-flowering Rose that will provide enjoyment for years to come!

Planting and Application:

Rose Trees like this can be grown as single specimens and focal points, or combined with other Roses and Tree Form Roses! Perfect as part of a carefully curated collection in your Rose garden! But what if we pushed the design envelope just a little more?

Either way, you'll gain armloads of blooms for bouquets and more for your beneficial pollinators that are sure to call your garden their home! Bring out its cool tones by underplanting it with silvery gray or gray-green perennials, or how about pairing it with spreading groundcovers? The combination of rough and polished feels modern!

This lavender selection from Weeks Roses Downton Abbey Collection looks incredible with cool-toned ebony, gray, and slate. But Violet's Pride™ blooms more than hold its own against contrasting yellow and orange flowering perennials, too!

This topiary Rose tree is the perfect size and shape for container gardening, plant this in large galvanized metal or glazed Tuscan yellow pottery containers along the edge of your patio to bring those gorgeous blooms nearer for closer study! Balconies, front porches, and seating areas anywhere in the sun are enhanced with these lovely plummy blooms!

#ProPlantTips for Care:

Rose Trees bloom best in full sun and need to be planted in generously mulched, enriched, well-drained soil and provide moderate, yet consistent moisture throughout the growing season. Ensuring the soil is enriched and well-drained to enjoy the best performance and good air circulation is important. Proper site selection and good garden hygiene keep this disease-resistant choice in tip-top shape (Lady Violet would expect nothing less!).

Water new plants regularly so they do not dry out between waterings and don't forget the Nature Hills Root Booster, to give this fragrant Rose life-long support when used during planting. Use 3-4 inches of arborist mulch to help keep the roots moist and keep the ground near your Roses hydrated on a regular schedule once established to support the blooms, avoiding splashing the foliage. Apply 3-4 inches of arborist mulch and apply Rose fertilizer 2-3 times a year for best results.

Rose Tree Care & Pruning

Some winter protection for Tree Form Roses is suggested for the colder zones 5 and 6 and some of zone 7 too by overwintering in an unheated garage after it goes dormant, or outside with straw and burlap wrap. Then in spring, take it back out or unwrap it and trim the head back to about a 12" sphere just as it begins to grow again in spring.

Early each spring, after the last frost of the year has passed, it's always a good idea to prune back the Rose tree several inches to maintain the nice round form atop its trunk. Keep new blooms returning with occasional deadheading, quickly improving your overall display.

Prune away suckers and branching that forms at the base or on the trunk each year too. Pruning Roses allows for better, bushier growth each year and stimulates new growth.

Rose Bush FAQs

Where Is The Best Place To Plant Rose Bushes?

Rose Trees need a protected location and prefer full sun and favor the drying power of the morning sun and flower best in at least 6 hours of direct sunlight a day. Choose a location in good, enriched soil that drains well and has good air circulation.

What Is The Best Month to Plant Roses?

You can plant Roses any time if you are able to provide enough consistent moisture and attention. While there is not a specific month that is best, generally because it changes with temperatures, climate and growing zone. However, the easiest times of the year to get Rose bushes established in your landscape are in spring after the last frost date, and in fall about 4-6 weeks before the first frost.

Do Roses Come Back Every Year?

Rose bushes are deciduous woody perennial shrubs and will return bigger and better each year.
