The sunny blooms tinged with orange and pink of ‘Gold Medal’ put a smile on everyone’s face. The large flowers are clustered and show off the hybrid tea rose form which part of the heritage of grandiflora roses. Lightly fragrant with a fruity scent, these roses on long stems are great for cutting.
‘Gold Medal’ is a grandiflora rose with a vigorous, tall, bushy habit and stems lined with sharp woody thorns. It has semi-glossy, large, leathery, deep green leaves. It blooms from early summer through frost with good care and maintenance. Flowering may occur earlier in southern zones.
Roses prefer full to partial sun, moderate temperatures and perfectly drained, slightly acid soil with average to good fertility. They grow best in places with slightly dry climates, because such climates disfavor the fungal diseases that plague them. For this reason, it is important to maintain good airflow within and between planted roses through good planting and pruning practices, which will dissuade fungal attacks. Roses are rife with pest and disease problems. Fortunately, cultivars like ‘Gold Medal’ are bred to be disease resistant.
Grandiflora roses are a garden must. They are perfect for sunny foundations, mixed borders and cutting gardens. Especially pretty, floriferous cultivars like this one.
