Probably the most popular class of roses, their long stems and exquisite flower form make them the best choice for cut flowers. Happily for many rose lovers, in recent years scent has been restored to more of the newer varieties. Additionally, the color range has spread far beyond the old standards.
Also look for the newer Romantica series of roses introduced by Star Roses and hybridized in the south of France. They have the characteristics of modern roses and excellent disease resistance accompanied by exquisite shapes and fragrance.
Clusters of flowers are produced on these tall growing plants. They are excellent background, screening plants or tall hedges. Grandifloras also provide lovely flowers for cutting.
