Dame te ata


Dame te Ata.jpg


Dame Te Ata was bred for the late Maori Queen. It was a great honour to be at the ceremony with six hundred guests when this rose was presented in her honour.

Dame Te Ata has masses of deep purple blooms which age to lavender tones. The flowers are borne in large clusters throughout the season and have an unforgettable fragrance. Spent blooms self clean helping to make Dame Te Ata an easy care variety. The plant is well clothed in matte green foliage that complements the flowers well.
