Moody Blue is a stunning rose with intense blue-lilac flowers. Large double blooms fade to silvery lavender. Grows to about 1 meter tall (~3-3.5 ft). Available as a bare root plant or in pots. Won't be mailed. Pick up in Halifax. Bare root pick-up: Bare root plants need to be picked up and planted within 2-3 days of their arrival to us. Bare root roses are tentatively arriving in the first week of May, but this may vary by a couple of days. A notification of roses arriving will be posted on our Facebook page about 1-2 weeks ahead of time. Roses can be planted in the garden in early May; they are hardy and won't mind an occasional night freeze. For the peace of mind, a frost cover (or an old bedsheet) can be thrown over them in cool weather. If you might not be able to pick up and plant your rose promptly, consider selecting "potted plant" option instead. Planting information and growing guide: https://halifaxperennials.ca/growing-guides
