Grandi Giardini Italiani ROSE®

The Grandi Giardini Italiani Rose® is intended to be a souvenir, an olfactory reminder of a day spent in one of the network's gardens. It is the fruit of lengthy research by the Barni family, and will be planted in the most beautiful Italian gardens open to the public. It will stand out from the others for its elegance, red-hot petals and intense perfume.

The new hybrid will be planted in the network's most important rose gardens adhering to the itinerary, In the name of the Rose, which was created by Grandi Giardini Italiani more than 15 years ago to reveal important collections of old and modern roses from April to June, when they are in full flower.

A shrub rose with large flowers, erect growth, dense, dark green foliage, particularly disease resistant. The flowers are borne on single, long stems, with conspicuous buds which gradually open into large, double corollas.

It belongs to the family of hybrid Tea roses and the colour gradually veers from a velvety red when in bud to crimson when fully open. The scent is remarkably intense, typical of Damascene roses, with the addition of fruity notes.

The variety has a great capacity to flower repeatedly until late autumn and can reach a height of 70/90 cm.

The Barni family

The Barni family emerged as traditional nurserymen in the nineteenth century when, in 1882, Vittorio Tommaso Barni began to sell vegetables, grapevines and maples used as poles in vineyards. From 1935 sanctions against Italy banned the importation of plants from Belgium and France, traditional producers. Thus Pietro and his son Vittorio started to cultivate roses which gradually became their main production, so much so that the name of the firm became ROSE BARNI.
Towards the end of the 1960s, the Barni family began to conduct their own research, developing an increasingly efficient and refined hybridisation programme.
Now the whole family continues the tradition, introducing innovative techniques and a high degree of specialisation.
