GRANDE AMORE ROSE
Rosa 'Grande Amore' is a standout among red hybrid tea roses, acclaimed for its depth of colour and exceptional disease resistance. It produces continuous flushes of dark red, pointed buds, which open into high-centred blooms of shiny, intense red, set against dark green, slightly glossy foliage. Resistance to blackspot and powdery mildew is outstanding. Awarded 5 International medals, including Golden Rose at the Hague Lyon, Rose Hills International and the ADR award. Winner of the International Gold Certificate in the Portland International Rose Garden in 2012. Flower Size: 10 cm. Fragrance: Moderate. Hybridiser: Kordes, 2004.
