Old Hybrid Tea
If any class of roses can be considered an enigma, Grandiflora is certainly one. In 1954,
a rose was created from a cross between a floribunda and hybrid tea. The tall, strong
plant with beautiful blooms of pink, was so new and unusual that the class Grandiflora was
created to accommodate the stately pink 'Queen Elizabeth.'.
While very few roses have met the standard first set by her majesty, there are some
outstanding Grandifloras offered today. A typical grandiflora has the flower quality of
the classic hybrid tea (long-stemmed, high-centered bloom), but produced in clusters like
a Floribunda. Growth is normally tall and vigorous and therefore Grandifloras are often
most valuable as background plants.
