There are two roses with this name, one an orange Grandiflora, the second, more recent one an orange blend Floribunda. I guess you'll know which rose Palatine Roses really has when you see if it grows 5 or 6 feet tall and is orange or orange red or if it is salmon orange. Neither has much scent. Neither is classed as a Hybrid Tea in Modern Roses 12.

"The grandiflora class is an ill-conceived American invention"

I've been saying this for years. You're right!
