This highly elusive rose is rarely offered for sale, but it's well worth buying when it occasionally becomes available. The pretty combination of beige and lavender is unique. It's exceptionally short for a grandiflora, and I suspect it would be a much more vigorous rose if it were grafted. Unfortunately, it's almost always sold as an own-root plant.

I bought this from Vintage Gardens who list it as a Hybrid Tea. It is very short growing for me too.
When counting, try not to mix chickens with blessings.

I think Vintage Gardens listed all of their grandifloras as hybrid teas, Sherry. I suspect the lovely little thing never gets tall on its own roots. Hortico used to carry the grafted version, and I wish I had bought it instead of the own-root one from Vintage Gardens.

Oh my gosh... seriously? I wonder why they did that..? It's so hard for me to think of it as in the same class as Queen Elizabeth... Smiling
