I would love to have a rose like this...

Yes thanks all - it is a stunner. My son spotted it in a florist shop and thought I'd appreciate it. I know the shop that sells this has only just started stocking these striped roses because the lady who sold it apparently went on and on and on and on (his words!) about how popular these have been and he vaguely remembers her calling it 'grandiflora red and white stripes'!!!! (not sure he's got it right).
No it doesn't have much of a perfume.

Wow, I didn't think it was real when I saw this, what a little cracker! He's certainly got a good eye your son.

Benieh:

What variety is this rose? I never seen this variety before.

Hi Delonix1 I'm afraid I don't know - I'm not a rose person. My son assures me the florist said it's called grandiflora red and white stripes - but I'm waiting for someone to recognise it on GOY. I might have to post it again for the rose growers.

Bernieh:

I'm not a rose-grower either...however, I love the flowers, and this is a beautiful variety.
