ABOUT FACE

Grandiflora 

A full, old-fashioned flower with golden yellow interior and a bronzy orange reverse.
  • Mild fresh apple fragrance. 
  • Bred by Weeks Roses
  • Repeats well.
  • Large, semi-glossy, dark green foliage. 
  • Suitable for zones 7 to 10.
  • Thrives in full sunshine.

A very novel ‘backwards’ bicolor whose lighter color of deep golden yellow is carried on the inside of the petals with a darker bronzy orange-red backside. Usually, bicolors have the lighter color on the outside of the petal & a darker inside. Plump pointed buds open to full old-fashioned blossoms. As the flowers mature, they blush & blend through a very pleasing array of colors all the way to the very finish. Easy-to-grow & loaded with color.

This tall super-vigorous plant yields long stems lush with clean deep green leaves. Grows upright and bushy. This is a high maintenance shrub that will require regular care and upkeep, and is best pruned in late winter once the threat of extreme cold has passed.
