Could this ruffled floribunda be any more dreamy? This enormous, show-stopping purple ruffled floribunda rose is the prize of my garden! It’s SO low maintenance – perfect for beginners! Jackson and Perkins calls Plum Perfect “the epitome of floral excellence” and they are spot on with that assessment. The ruffled petals are so fancy, you might feel like you fell down a rabbit hole into Wonderland.
Plum Perfect is part of the Kordes Sunbelt Collection, which means it’s quite at home in my dry, hot garden near Dallas, Texas. It’s a self-cleaning rose, which means you don’t have to deadhead it to get more blooms.
Update 2/26/22: the Jackson & Perkins website says that Plum Perfect grows 3-4 feet tall and the blooms are about 2-3″. However, my Plum Perfect rose now easily stands over five feet tall. I promise this spring I’ll take an updated photo for you. It’s a real show-stopper in my front yard: tall, wide, and constantly covered in blooms.
This beauty lives in my front yard, greeting my guests with all her glory. She sits next to Show Your Stripes. Both are only a year old but are doing marvelous, with healthy foliage and no signs of disease. They have full sun and well drained soil. Plum Perfect bloomed first and kept me in constant supply of blooms for the last month.
This is such a fragrant rose, I often notice joggers stopping to smell the beautiful pinkish-purple blooms! The blooms smell incredible, like sweet summer berries. If you’re looking for an easy keeper with an amazing fragrance, this is the rose for you.
