'Eyes For You'
I don't post photos of roses here, much -- because I rarely have a Modern rose to talk about. This time, though, I do.
'Eyes For You' is a Hulthemia hybrid, bred in the UK by P. James. It's not supposed to be gigantic, and the fragrance is extraordinary. VERY sweet, with a spicy edge to the fragrance -- and believe me, I am fragrance-challenged. There are many roses I simply cannot smell.
The color as it opens is a lavender-toned pink, but I have seen that the color shifts to a soft blue as the bloom begins to age.
I don't know that it's in commerce in the U.S. at present, but I hope it is very soon, because I think it's got tremendous potential. It's the sort of rose you want to place where you will pass it often, to enjoy the fragrance.
