Memorial Day™

All it takes is one of the huge old-fashioned flowers to fill an entire room with sweet rose perfume – the classic smell that everyone expects from a rose. Loves hot weather – the hotter the better for unfurling every lovely petal. Long cutting stems are very attractively clothed the rich green clean foliage – right up to the big blossom. Vigorous & productive – it’s an easy-to-grow addition to any garden.
