I have Big Purple at $15 in 8" pots or $12 bareroot in winter. Have been growing it for 12 years and have never had a problem with it. It's as good as or better than the latest roses on offer today. Definately ticks all the boxes.

Well, after the initial rave last season, I still love mine, and consider it miles more beautiful and fragrant than the much newer Blackberry Nip. MY Big Purples didn't have a prolific season last year, but what did emerge was so gratifying that I am very happy to have them around. In this second year, I think I will see more blooms.

BP flushes frequently but does not have blooms throughout
the entire season, one of the very best HT's.

I shifted mine this season to a more open area see how it goes.Read so many great things about this rose I never got much flowers tho and noticed doesnt like the extreme sun and heat.
