Had this rose in my garden in Knoxville, TN for 5 years. It was one of the outstanding performers I had. I just planted a new garden in Sterling, VA this season and its been in the ground a month and already has 4 buds. Always felt it was one of the most beautiful roses I've grown.

Granada is a very healthy, vigiourous rose that blooms very well for me. The best thing about it is the smell. It smells soooo good. It doesn't get babied and yet it doesn't have any black spot and continuous to put on new blooms. To top it off I got it for 4.00$ at Walmart and it looked sad and now it's a beautiful bush. I definitely recommend this rose.

Update 12/5/14. I live in louisiana but we have had several cold nights so far (got in the 20's) and this rose is still putting on new growth. It had blooms on it in November and it's now December and it is still huge, beautiful and lush. Wonderful plant.

It's a beauty. It is not as full/wide as my others, but it's healthy and produces beautiful blooms in South Jersey.
