Once you see the porcelain pink frilly petals softened with a lavender wash, and lush foliage,you'll see why it was named Memorial day. A time to remember.......
This is one rose you won't likely forget! If your planting zone allows you to grow Hybrid Teas, this is one of many that are worthy of an honored spot in your garden.
(Maybe you could plant one in remembrance of a loved one who has passed, or of all servicemen and women who serve our country.)
