A new cultivar of grandiflora rose, Rosa ‘BAIcent’, characterized by its clusters of double, high-centered blossoms on long, straight stems with apricot to pale yellow flowers that turn creamy white. Abundant flowers are present in May and June and recurrently throughout the season over dark green, satiny, bronze tinged foliage that is resistant to rose blackspot and powdery mildew. The new variety is readily propagated on its own roots and hardy in U.S.D.A. Zones 4 to 9.
The new variety of rose, `BAIcent`, designated as seedling No. 96R815, was selected among seedlings derived from a cross made in Yamhill, Oreg. in 1996 between the female parent, `MACivy` (U.S. Plant Pat. No. 8,362) and the male parent, designated No. R3412 (unnamed proprietary seedling, not patented). [later in the text: R93412]
