BN Is one of my favourites. My only gripe is that it's a floribunda and I very rarely get a stem long enough to put in a vase. The scent is amazing. I would have more if I had room!!

There is a way you can have a HT type bloom, the stem lenght might not be as long. As floribundas have central leader which flower before the rest of the head. If you pinch this one out early all the head will flower together. The other option is take all the flower stems off but the central leader, this will give the HT look. It is not perfect but. If you look closely at HT's they have secondary flowers on the stem, there are not many HT's that only have one proper stem and flower.
Just as a side note, this approach of taking out the central leader can be applied to any form of floribunda type flower
