An old time favorite, Rosa 'Queen Elizabeth' is an exquisite Grandiflora rose with large, 4 in. across (10 cm), full, high-centered to cupped, silver-pink flowers (38-40 petals). Borne mostly solitary or in long-stemmed clusters, the regal blossoms emit a moderate tea fragrance and bloom in flushes from spring to fall.

Reliable, hardy and disease resistant, this lovely rose has won 5 prestigious awards. A rose fit for a queen. Perfect for the back of the border or as a flowering hedge.
