Grandiflora roses, are a cross between Hybrid Teas and Floribundas. These gardening roses are usually taller, and bloom in clusters, or trusses, rather than single blooms.
They produce a rose bush that can grow to a commanding height of 6-8 feet tall, making them perfect for the back of the garden.
Grandiflora roses are wonderful roses for cutting. View some below with growing information.
The Hybrid tea side of the cross gives the rose bush beautiful, large flowered, high centered blooms, with long stems for cutting.
The Floribunda side of this cross, contributes clustered blooms, continual flowering, and hardiness.
Together, a Hybrid Tea, and Floribunda rose make for one fabulous Grandiflora Rose!~
