Greetings Gardeners, Horticulturists, Rose Lovers, All!

Contest #2 - Name that Rose!

We need your help and inspiration in generating names for some of our 2016 introductions. Please review the roses below and send us your suggestions at If your submission is chosen Weeks will award a pair of garden gloves, a pair of Felco clippers and a sample test bundle of our introductions this spring that includes the new Downton Abbey selection.

Please submit all entries by midnight PST Thursday September 18th

Also, for those of you with the knack for clever moniker-making, we need some fresh ideas for names describing a series of true groundcover roses -- roses that will hug a garden path, trim a sidewalk, or provide a soft edge to a garden, i.e. Color Mat (Yuk, right?)

For your participation in this contest, you will be eligible for a drawing of a test bundle of roses. There will be 5 winners in this drawing!

Give us name suggestions for the following roses:

Hybrid Tea Rose

Floribunda Rose

Shrub Rose

Smoked orange with a white reverse White with a pink picotee Pink and yellow

Groundcover Rose #1

Groundcover Rose #2

Miniature Rose

Yellow with a pink picotee Yellow Peach and yellow blend

Thank you for your participation. Let the names begin!
