'Veilchenblau' is a hybrid rose cultivar that was bred in Germany in 1909. Other names for the same rose include 'Bleu-Violet',[1] 'Blue Rambler', 'Blue Rosalie' and 'Violet Blue'.

The plant has very few prickles and is considered a climbing rose. It grows from 3 to 6 metres (10 to 20 ft) in height. The flowers are small, with a sweet smell. The petal colour is mauve and white, or crimson and white when the flowers first open.[1] The stamens are yellow.[2]

This rose was granted the "Award of Garden Merit" by the Royal Horticultural Society in 1993.
