Remember Me Roses

The Remember me Rose Gardens

remember me rosesRemember Me with Roses

The Remember Me Roses, are a living tribute in honor of all who lost their lives in the September 11, 2001 terrorist attack on Americans.

Three rose gardens were planted, one in each place; New York City, Washington D.C., and Pennsylvania, all locations of the attacks.

These remember me rose gardens are a beautiful place that friends and family of those who died, or anyone honoring the right to freedom, can come, enjoy the beauty of it and hopefully gain some comfort and peace in remembrance of that tragic day.


The Rose Flower Symbolizes  ~ LOVE

The 'Remember Me' gardens of roses are meant to affirm love and life...as a new generation of roses bloom each year.

If you have room in your garden (and live in the climate to grow them)... Plant one in remembrance.....and may we never forget the many people who lost their lives that day.

The inspiration for planting a garden of  'Remember Me' roses, came from a very special lady 'Sue Casey' from Portland Oregon.

Like all of us on that day, her heart was heavy, and she felt a need to reach out and do something. Her idea of planting the garden came to her while sitting in the parking lot of a church.

Her goal to construct these public gardens have become a reality, and I am sure are greatly appreciated by many....
