Rosa grandaflorus Queen Elizabeth II
the Queen Elizabeth II Grandaflora. this is considered by many as the most perfect Rose of all. It was named for Queen Elizabeth II on June 2nd 1953 on the day of her coronation.
This rose is incredible from many stand points . Very few faults can be found with it. It is really meant to be a back drop Rose as it does and can get up to 3 meters in height. To get this height it needs a back support like a wall or fence. This one consistently gets to that. Also makes a beautiful hedge plant as well, although expensive. Once established it is so worth the price. Like most roses this is a big feeder and drinker. Give it a feed of high first and third numbers, and a low second. this Rose has a draw back for some leaf diseases. If you want high fragrances this is not for you either. however always worth the effort. In some countries it is referred to as a Hybrid T but in Canada it is referred to as Bundaflorus or a Grandaflorus. What ever you call it she is a must in your garden.
