The Grande Dame rose, bears the most beautiful and romantic old fashioned fragrant blooms.
The vibrant color on this rose is rose pink, and the blooms are quite large. The rose flowers appear in huge, nodding clusters on a very clean, disease resistant bush with medium green foliage that covers the bush.
The large flowers on the Grande Dame rose are as big as 6" across, and have a luscious, old rose scent that you may remember from roses in the past.
The vigorous growing bush can grow 4-6' tall to 6' wide. It is upright growing, and somewhat spreading and bushy.

Although I don't grow Hybrid Teas, (mainly because they don't do well in my zone 5 climate), I've been looking at this rose for a while, and have had good reports on it, so I'm thinking I might give it a try next spring, if I can find one Own-root. I'll keep you posted...
