  • Posted by zuzu (Northern California - Zone 9a) on Feb 2, 2014 9:12 PM concerning plant:
    This beautiful grandiflora exhibits near-perpetual bloom and ideal long-stemmed roses if the canes are pruned back to 8-12 inches during the dormant season. It appears to be a rose that requires grafting for peak performance. My two grafted Love rose bushes are about 6 feet tall and bloom well into the winter. My one own-root Love rose bush is still only about 2 feet tall after five years in the ground and is much less floriferous.
