Rose Grandpa Dickson

If you're looking for a smaller hybrid tea with champion flowers, then look no further than Grandpa Dickson. Created at the height of the sixties when hybrid teas were all the rage, Grandpa Dickson packs a punch with its large lemon-yellow blooms, complemented by the glossy green foliage, on a compact plant. It only grows up to 75cm tall, making it superb for bedding, and one of the few hybrid tea roses that's suitable for growing in a container.

The blooms are exhibition size, what you would expect from a plant twice the height, and if you're after a taller version, then Golden Jubile rose is worth a look.

Grandpa Dickson Roses in Your Garden

A highly versatile choice, its compact growth means that it looks great grown en masse as a bedding rose, in a smaller version of the traditional rose bed. You won't get the 'legginess' often associated with taller-growing hybrid teas, and the huge flowers in luminous lemon-yellow really brighten up any planting scheme.

On a smaller scale, you can plant three together to give a similar effect without taking up as much room. Grandpa Dickson will happily grow in a large container, as long as you water and feed well.
