Named for the Dowager Countess of Grantham, Violet Crawley, this rose is the embodiment of the character from the PBS series, Downton Abbey. Wise and passionate, she is a witty spitfire to the core and has a likability about her that makes her one of the most memorable characters. The fragrance of sugary fruit with some spice for good measure.
