Red blend Grandiflora.
Registration name: El Catalá
Grandiflora. Buck Roses Collection.
Red blend. Mild fragrance. Blooms in flushes throughout the season.
USDA zone 5b and warmer. Spring Pruning: Remove old canes and dead or diseased wood and cut back canes that cross. In warmer climates, cut back the remaining canes by about one-third. In colder areas, you'll probably find you'll have to prune a little more than that.
Sam Kedem says the color of the blooms intensifies in the heat.
