State of Grace™ Grandiflora RoseEnglish style for American gardens
You May Like
Many U.S. home gardeners appreciate the English style rose gardens. However, when true English roses are grown here, they tend to be really tall and spiky—not well balanced at all. So the breeder, Christian Bedard worked to create a more compact, even habit that would stick to the English style flower form and style. State of Grace™ is the gorgeous result. Starting with U.S. hybridization meant this new cultivar would adapt better to our climates. It has excellent downy and powdery mildew resistance, and good all-around disease resistance. The habit is uniform, compact and rounded with flowers tidily blooming and reblooming on top. As the name describes, the transition from bud to bloom is seamless here, the flowers staying elegant throughout. The coloring is very elaborate, too. Bronzy pink outer petals stretch to reveal a gorgeous golden center, all hues blending together into a nice, soft tone. As a grandiflora, it'll produce 3-4 of these nice large flowers in a cluster. They'll be accompanied by a moderate fruit fragrance, and tons of the neighborhood butterflies. Rosa hybrid 'Wekspodotogi'
