Radiant Perfume Grandiflora Rose

'Radiant Perfume' Grandiflora Rose

A must-have for garden or vase!

The wonderful fresh-cut lemon scent and bright sparkling color make these long-stemmed blooms most welcome in borders and bouquets. This vigorous, statuesque plant always looks clean and healthy, its glossy, dark green foliage acting as a lovely background for the brilliant yellow roses. The 4- to 5-inch blooms open slowly from lovely pointed, ovoid buds, releasing a delicious strong citrus fragrance. They arise in flushes throughout their early summer to late summer season. A must-have for garden or vase!

'Radiant Perfume' reaches a mature size of 5 to 6 feet high and 3 to 4 feet wide. It's very vigorous and has shown itself to be resistant to mildew and rust, making it an even more welcome addition to the landscape.

'Radiant Perfume' performs best in medium-moisture, slightly acidic, well-drained loam in full sun. Water deeply and regularly, preferably in the morning, and avoid overhead watering. Make sure the plant has good air circulation, as this promotes vigorous and healthy growth and helps prevent disease. A layer of mulch during the summer months helps to retain moisture, keep roots cool, and discourage the growth of weeds.

It should be pruned in the spring, with the removal of old canes and dead wood. Cut back canes that cross each other. Gardeners in warmer climates will want to cut the remaining canes by one-third, while those in colder climates will probably need to trim it a bit more.
