Purple flowering roses
Contrasting beautifully with their fresh green leaves, purple flowering roses make a stunning addition to rose beds and mix borders. Purple rose cultivars combine well with most colour schemes, working just as well with whites and pastel colours as they do with fiery oranges and reds. Purple is known for giving a sense of luxury and elegance, having a calming effect on your outdoor space. It is a little less common and there are fewer purple varieties available than there are more stereotypical rose colours such as pinks and reds, offering the garden something a little more unique and distinctive. We've hand-picked the best purple flowering roses below based on healthy growth, disease resistance and beautiful flowers.
