Rose Noble

Several growers report on the strong stems of ‘Rose Noble’. In my garden it looked pretty bad in 2020, likely from a late frost – the foliage took on a bronzy, purple color and the stamens turned black. The photos are from previous years.  You will often find this plant listed as ‘Rose Nobel’ which is not the correct spelling but you would likely get the correct plant!
