Life at № 42 by E.M. Coutinho
I’ve been looking for Indigoletta rose to buy and grow on the garage. It’s a rose with a very fine, delicate colour (see above.) Looking online, again and again, I noticed many sellers are using this picture:
What is that? Ridiculous. That colour should be officially named Prostitute’s Panties Purple. The only time you’ll ever find an indigoletta rose in that colour is in photoshop. And what class of people would want neon purple in their gardens anyway? A dictator’s wife? Terribly misguided. The real thing is incomparably more attractive.
This seems to be a recurring issue. I find forum after forum of people complaining plants they bought don’t match the colours advertised.
