On one bush, a Chrysler Imperial, (absolutely heavenly fragrance) I had 80 open blooms at one time, the bush itself was over 6 feet tall. This was a hybrid tea, not a floribunda. The blooms were huge. I miss that bush.
Fragrance is back again. My current favorite is "Tea time" (Tantau 1994)
It's a favorite of other people too, it was elected rose queen of the flower-island Mainau in Lake Konstanz Germany 5 times in the last seven years, including this year.
Edit. It's flower bed is found here: 47.70381n 9.19963e
Paste that in the google earth fly to box. Unfortunately that picture is taken in wintertime.
