Man of Steel is new and unique and is set apart from other rose "mini flora" by the intense fragrance. No other rose or plant comes close.
    This is a real little beauty. Fully petalled petite blooms repeat flower on a tidy litle bush just perfect for pots. Who would think that such a small thing would be so colourful and have the bonus of such intense fragrance. Mysterious, oh so soft pastel lavender flowers, bordering on "stainless" steel, push more lavender with age. Big bloom bunches bounce from rich green and glossy foliage, making for one snip bouquets filling the air with fragrance.
    Put up against the much bigger Stainless Steel, the similarities are clear, so we have called this little gentleman "Man of Steel"
