The breeder, Christian Bedard worked diligently to create a more compact, even habit emblimatic of English Roses. State of Grace™ is the gorgeous result. U.S. hybridization meant this new cultivar would adapt better to our climates.
It has excellent downy and powdery mildew resistance, and good all-around disease resistance. The habit is uniform, compact and rounded with flowers tidily blooming and reblooming on top. As the name describes, the transition from bud to bloom is seamless grace--the flowers staying elegant throughout. The coloring is very elaborate, too. Bronzy pink outer petals stretch to reveal a gorgeous golden center, all hues blending together into a nice, soft tone. As a grandiflora, it'll produce 3-4 of these nice large flowers in a cluster. They'll be accompanied by a moderate fruit fragrance that will make this beautiful showpiece the envy of the neighborhood.
