About Face Rose

Orange Grandiflora Roses

About Face rose

The About Face rose is a beautiful orange blend rose bush. These orange Grandiflora roses have a striking color combination that will make a statement in any landscape design.

This Grandiflora rose bush could become the focal point of your garden! (If you are lucky enough to be in the right planting zone to grow it)

Plant some red and/or yellow roses nearby, and for companion flowers, something blue or purple would be a nice combination.

The lovely ovoid buds on the About Face rose are a deep burnished red that open to a golden orange on the inside, with  a deeper bronze red on the outside of the petals.

The color on the flowers stays beautiful at all stages of bloom from bud to finished flowers. (See picture) With both buds and blooms on the bush at the same time, the color combination on these orange roses is wonderful.

The bush itself grows upright, and is very vigorous growing. It branches out well, and produces lots of beautiful flowers!

The wonderful blooms stand out nicely against the dark green foliage that is disease resistant as well.

The blooms make nice cut flowers, and the bush will produce them generously! Be warned though, you'll find lots of thorns on this Grandiflora rose bush!

The bush is cluster-flowered and gives you clusters of these striking blooms throughout the growing season.

About Face grows vigorously, is well branched, and can become bushy, reaching a height of 5-6'.

Best Uses;

Garden bed -They grow large, so plant them in the back of the border and give them room to grow.

Cut flowers - The blooms make stunning flowers for the vase, with a slight sweet fragrance.

This is one I would love to plant (if only it were hardy to my zone)! I generally don't attempt to grow ones that are not hardy to my climate. (And neither should you!)
