Nicole Carol Miller Rose (Rosa ‘Meikismov’)

Nicole Carol Miller Rose

With incomparable beauty and poignant meaning, lavender blushed Nicole Carol Miller™ Rose (Rosa ‘Meikismov’) is a Grandiflora to be proud of. Exquisite, high-centered buds spiral open to up to 40 pale lavender mixed with intense mauve petals. Loved by pollinators and easy to grow, there is an added meaning to this lovely Rose. You’ll be thrilled to show off the enormous blooms of this upright bush.

These beautiful, fragrant Roses commemorate a brave Heroine of the 9/11 attacks on our Nation. Let their strong citrus scent remind you of someone you love, or commemorate a brave act on your part, like graduating from law school, adopting a child, or starting a business. Wonderful memorial plants and gift plants, these subtle lavender blooms are a respectful hue.

Quilted semi-glossy foliage is very disease resistant, so it stays clean and makes a perfect visual foil to the showy lavender brushed blossoms. This Grandiflora is hardy throughout hot and humid USDA growing zones 6 to 9 and grows to 4-6 feet in height but only 3-4 feet in width while remaining adaptable and low-maintenance. With great genetics, Modern Roses are remarkably versatile.

Planting and Application:
