Your most prolific hybrid teas & grandifloras?

sara_ann-z6bokApril 29, 2014

I have been wondering which hybrid tea and grandiflora roses are the most prolific for others? I grow these mostly for the look of the individual blooms themselves, but also like them to put on a good display and also be prolific enough to cut a few,

Through the years my most prolific have been -

Queen Elizabeth
Double Delight
Peace
Dublin
Love
Folklore
The McCartney Rose
Tiffany
Sweet Surrender
Proud Land
Pink Peace
Midas Touch

I have or have had others that are good bloomers too, but I would consider these the most prolific.

Bride's Dream was the best for me. Unfortunately, it's now on life support and I'm waiting to see if it recovers from winter damage.

In my garden, Elle has been the most prolific HT, but also quite good are Red Intuition and Berolina.

Thanks for letting me know which ones are your most prolific. Kate, I planted Berolina, it's looking good.

The heaviest blooming HTs or Grandis I have experience with would be Orchard's Pride, Brigadoon, Arizona, and Dark Night. Dark Night is newer but it is very prolific.

Tiffany was ridiculously easy and beautiful.

Blue Girl was great because of the sheer size, but needed to be treated well.

Chicago Peace.

Scentimental, JFK, and Oranges and Lemons were biggies for me. I just put in two Dark Nights, looking forward to see how they grow.

Cambel - I would love to have a prolific lavender hybrid tea, Love Song does great, but it's a floribunda. Chicago Peace is such a pretty rose, how nice for it to have lots of blooms. Holly - My JFK does look promising, this is just its second season, mine is slower to get going than my other hybrid teas, it only bloomed twice last year, but its second flush was prolific. I'm hoping it will be a good one, like yours once it gets really established. The bush itself seems healthy. The pictures I've seen of Dark Night are gorgeous, I would like to know how yours does.

Talk about prolific. My sister sent me a couple of pictures yesterday of her only rose (other than a Knock Out), Touch of Class. it is not blooming yet, but she said it had at least 100 buds on it! The bush is huge and looks very healthy, can't wait to see it in bloom!
