This large-flowered hybrid tea rose bears it's roses sometimes singly, but mostly in a wide "cluster" of roses. Flowers form a high center, and old blooms are loosely cupped.
The initial generous flush of flowers makes the best display, but the bush does continue to produce flowers Summer through Fall.
Urn shaped buds become large, double, perfectly formed 4-5" spicy scented flowers that are produced on long stems perfect for cutting. The strong, rose/clove fragrance is wonderful. Any rose with an award in fragrance, is sure to be richly scented.
And what color it displays! This rose is a classic among Hybrid Teas. The color combination of the "Granada" rose is delightful. This rose bush will really add color to your garden. And a bouquet of these roses will add beauty and delicious scent inside the house.
Granada is sometimes prone to powdery Mildew, but other-wise it is considered a very disease resistant rose. It is however not reliably winter hardy.
