Blue Rose is a tall vigorously growing shrub with prolific fruiting that is best suited to cooler climates. It provides attractive autumn colour and produces large fruit that must remain on the shrub until fully ripe otherwise they can be very acidic and bitter to taste. It's ideal for pots or garden beds and requires a full sun to partly shady position with an acidic soil to thrive.
