- Clusters of tea-style roses on long stems
- Glossy, dark green foliage
- All-America Selections winner
When introduced in 1955, this large landscape variety quickly gained a following. Gardeners loved the clusters of clear pink, tea-style blooms on long stems. They were breath-taking in the garden and in cut-flower arrangements—and the glossy, dark green foliage really made the elegant flowers stand out. The flowers are self-cleaning—no deadheading needed, and the plants are easy to prune. Queen Elizabeth Grandiflora Rose is an All-America Rose Selections winner—and still a favorite in gardens throughout the United States.
