Great Century

Type: Hybrid Tea

As the name might imply, this is a rose with very large blooms (petals 30). Each bloom can reach 8" across and are produced on a continual blooming bush. Its coloring is soft and charming, something one would not expect from this giant. Delicate, pink shaded cream blooms with red stamens help to make 'Great Century' a standout in the garden or vase. Spectacular!

Beautiful red stamens, lovely rose!Review by Dianne
I have grown this rose for fifteen years in all weather conditions. It survives cold as low as five below zero, and heat of 105 F . While it isn't the most fragrant of all roses, it is nicely so. Its red stamens contrasting with its large, soft pink petals make it a stand-out among all pink roses, in my opinion. (Posted on 6/16/2017)
soft pink/white flowerReview by Ming
I got it this spring and it's first flower is pretty big, not as big as it can be yet. Very nice soft pink. But the flower is not very fragrant at all, as it should be. Small brush so far, and does not stand the heat too well, here at zone 10. Aphids love it. (Posted on 5/3/2017)
