Grandiflora Roses

So, what exactly is a Grandiflora? If we look at the name we would assume it means something along the lines of "Big Flowers". But perhaps it would be slightly more accurate to say "Lots of flowers", as that is one way to distinguish a Grandiflora from a Hybrid Tea rose.

A Grandiflora is a cross between a Hybrid Tea and a Floribunda. It inherits the best of both... the high centered blooms of the H.T, and the multiple flower sprays of the Floribunda. They also tend to be very vigorous, and often grow much taller than a Typical Hybrid Tea. Here in North West Victoria, Australia, we have long hot summers and some of the Grandifloras can get up to 2-3 meters tall.

Since they do tend to grow large, be sure to provide enough space for your grandifloras. In tougher, less forgiving areas give at least two feet of space, more in warmer climates as they will get bigger there. Grandiflora roses are rated from zones 4-9 but tend to be a little more cold tolerant than H.T roses.

You can generally do well with propagating these via grafts, but some people have noted they've done well with own roots. Clip dead flowers and you should get continual blooming.

Roses By Type

Wild roses, Hybrids, climbers, miniatures and more. Make some sense of the multitude of rose varieties with our handy guides.

Wild Roses
Wild or species roses. They have a natural simple beauty, with their plain 5 petal flowers and vibrant red hips.
Old Fashioned
This includes varieties such as Alba, Damask, Gallica, Hybrid Perpetual, Bourbons, Moss, and many more.
Hybrid Tea
Probably the most popular type in use today. Orignally created by crossing Hybrid Perpetuals and Tea roses.
Climbing Roses
The climbers are not a variety, they can come from different families such as HT's, Floribundas, Antiques etc.
Rambling Roses
Similar habit to the climbers, but with a few subtle (and important to remember) differences between them.
Floribunda
Well known for their prolific sprays of flowers, the floribundas are a very popular garden choice.
Ground Covers
This encompasses varieties such as the Knockout, Drift, and Star roses. Generally very easy care.
Miniatures
A great way to bring your roses indoors or onto the patio. And with a low price, you can have as many as you want!
English Roses
One of the best loved varieties, David Austin's English roses are a must have for your garden.
Shrub Roses
This class is a "catch all" for roses that just don't fit other catagories. A bit of a cop out really!
