If you are looking for a fragrant rose besides the old standby, Grande Dame is your answer. Grande Dame is considered a Hybrid Tea rose with the old fashioned form and an old Garden rose fragrance. The bloom is quite large, 5 to 6 inches across with over 30-petal count and its color of deep rose-pink has a hint of blue tones provided by its ‘Wild Blue Yonder’ parentage. The scent of its bloom invites you to bury your nose in it and inhale its old garden rose fragrance which is quite strong reminding you of Grandma’s Garden.

Grande Dame grows into a big shrub about 4 to 5 ½ feet in height with few thorns. The foliage is deep green and very disease resistant. Grande Dame blooms in flushes all through the season, giving plenty of blooms to enjoy its fragrance inside your home and in the garden as well as a great addition to your landscape.

Grande Dame is one rose to have in your garden – it’s vigorous, disease resistant, great color, plenty of beautiful blooms and very fragrant. So what are you waiting for?


Tip #30 – Spend your time wisely. For when it’s lost, it cannot be retrieved.


Until Next time. Stop and Smell the Roses.
