I bought this from Costco as rose tree last year,didn't know much about it BUT For Grandifora, Gives u LARGE blooms, very pretty colors like salmonish orange with hint of yellow inside , well growth and blooms repeatedly with light scent ,BUT gets REAL TALL,Needs pruning more often, I dont have any problem with diseases or anything with it .. Because I use Bayer all in one product on all my roses & also planted in sunny area, pretty colors with LARGE size blooms.. Nice tree & some people asked for name of the rose .. . Looks colorful and pretty in my garden, I'm happy with it!.

WOW! Is this one is very pretty! Nice big blooms, strong fragrance, hues of orange, yellow, salmon... exceedingly strong grower. I hacked mine up a few weeks ago and it is going bonkers! I should get crazy with the pruners more often!

There are only a couple of complaints I have... it has LOTS of thorns and is not very resistant to diseases. It is a blackspot magnet! Although, regular treatments of Immunox Plus and Neem have taken care of any disease problems. ;) Accordingly, I am rewarded with blooms the size of a grapefruit.

It's a grandiflora with dark leathery leaves, upright and vigorous growth habit.I'll post again after this plant has an opportunity to "prove" itself in my garden. ;)

This plant is new to me. The blooms start off much more orange/peach colored and as it ages fade to a soft pink. Great scent that can be enjoyed just as passing by.
