Grandiflora is a classification term first used in 1954. It is a cross between hybrid tea and floribunda rose. Their flowers cluster on top of tall stems with bloom sizes much larger than floribunda. They are taller roses making them ideal back border and screen plants. Grandiflora blooms are "doubles" but alas, lack a strong fragrance. The 'Queen Elizabeth' rose was the first entry in the grandiflora class.
