Bi-Color Grandiflora Roses
The Love Rose is one of the best red and silver colored bicolored roses. This Grandiflora is one of a trio bred by William Warriner using the wedding promise words: Love, Honor, and Cherish. "Honor" is a Hybrid Tea rose, and "Cherish" a Floribunda. (All three won the All American Rose Selection for 1980)
Love has bright red flowers with a pure white reverse. The high centered blooms can be produced in single blossoms,or in sprays in warmer weather.

The beautiful two-toned buds open slowly to well formed exhibition type blooms that are very long lasting. The bush looks nice in all stages of bloom from bud to fully open flowers. When the flowers are fully open, you will no longer see the white undersides. The plant is fairly disease resistant, and grows upright, and stocky.
Beware when cutting bouquets, it has lots of large thorns! It blooms continually all season long.
One of the best of the two-toned roses. These Grandiflora roses are red roses with a white reverse. (Unusual)
Don't you just "love" this rose?
This is a bush in full bloom, isn't it pretty?
