Grandiflora - Cream & Cherry Blushed Burgundy

2011 AARS winner.  No two flowers are exactly alike on this changeable chameleon of a rose.  Black-red buds spiral open to show off swirls of cream edged & washed with vibrant cherry pink.  But that’s not the end of the exhibit on these classically-formed fragrant flowers.  When the sun strikes the petals, they begin to blush burgundy, finishing as a deep dark red.  Put all this color against super-shiny-green foliage with nice long cutting stems and you’ve got a killer combo.  Easy to grow, great vigor – a beautiful bushy baby from the famous Fourth of July.
