Granada blooms right through the super-hot and super-humid summers of the Houston area. It is more drought tolerant than other HT's. I never had to spray it for disease or insects and is very vigorous and prolific bloomer. It's my best HT performer of the year.

This is the first year for Granada in my rose garden and I am thoroughly impressed. While it developed powdery mildew right off the bat, I moved it to a sunnier location and it has been disease free since. The first flush was good-the second was spectacular--definitely acts like a floribunda, with all the blooms it produces-and this is just its first year! Lovely fragrance-my only complaint (if it is one)-is that the delicate colors change to deep pink within 1-2 days. Still, a very pretty rose and one that I am happy to have regaling the garden. Butterflies are attracted to it, too-must be the fragrance.--A 2007 update--Granada remained a BS/mildew magnet in my garden, though she responded well to organic spraying. She bloomed well but not prolifically and was replaced this year during the culling of the roses. I'm not adverse to trying her again in the future, though, so I can once more enjoy those blooms!
