Comments: 1971 AARS winner. Considered by many to be one of the very best grandiflora roses, 'Aquarius' flowers freely from spring until frost, producing small sprays of up to five double blooms that are lightly fragrant. Foliage is large and leathery. Blooms in flushes throughout the season. Plants are urn shaped, upright, and vigorous. They are well suited to beds and borders, and flowers are ideal for cutting. This rose is extremely disease resistant.
