Grandifloras combine the vigor and blooming ability of floribundas with the beautiful blooms and long stems of hybrid teas. This is not a surprising combination since they resulted from crosses between the two groups. Their vigorous growth habit makes them more satisfactory garden subjects than hybrid teas. These gardening roses are usually taller and bloom in clusters or trusses, rather than single blooms.
They are sturdy, upright-growing plants that are generally well-clothed in large, shiny leaves similar to the leaves of hybrid teas. They bear clusters of large flowers that, in the best cultivated varieties, are as attractive in both bud and bloom as hybrid teas, although often not as perfumed. Grandifloras generally bloom continually over the flowering season rather than in bursts.
Grandifloras are generally hardier than hybrid teas and suffer less from winter kill. Nevertheless, they require full winter protection in cold regions. Remove faded flowers to ensure continual bloom. Although their tall stems may suggest a need for staking, they are self-supporting.
Full sun is needed. Some common types of grandiflora roses include the Camelot, with coral-pink flowers; the Queen Elizabeth, which produces medium pink blossoms; and the Arizona, with copper gold blooms.
