What a spectacular rose this is! Not only does this rose bush bloom abundantly, but the flowers hold their color well, even through the heat of Summer. It is a vigorous growing bush with flowers that stand out brilliantly against the lovely dark green glossy foliage.
It is a stand-out in the garden, producing generous sprays of bloom
throughout the growing season. The pretty, cupped blooms open flat, and are
set off by the dark foliage.This is a rose that is very disease resistant. Especially to Black spot, and Mildew.
Here is a picture I took of the whole bush. It was just covered in beautiful blooms!
I photographed these bi-colored Grandiflora roses at the Elizabeth Rose Garden in CT, and I must confess, it was one of my favorites!
The swirling cherry colored blossoms drew me to it like a magnet. I couldn't believe how colorful they were. It is certainly a very beautiful rose.
(unfortunately it is not hardy to my zone, so I won't attempt to grow it, but what a beauty!)
To avoid dissapointment: Always check the hardiness zone of any rose before you attempt to grow it. (This one requires Spring freeze protection)
In Europe you will find this rose under the name; Jubile du Prince Monaco, where it is classified differently.
Uses: Garden bed, border, landscape rose, container.
