Remembering Barbara

It was fitting to celebrate Barbara Oliva's life in the Historic Rose Garden that she worked in for so long and also fitting the roses received a much needed drizzling rain on her day.

Historic Rose Garden

The Historic Rose Garden includes more than 500 old garden roses from a variety of sources and sites.  The collection includes some unique roses, not found anywhere else.  Click here for a  catalog of roses in the garden.

Cemetery Musk Seedling

We're propagating this rose. A unique seedling that appeared in our garden about ten years ago, it continuously bears clusters of single flowers with a strong spicy fragrance.  Without pruning, it's grown into a fountain-shaped shrub about five feet tall and six feet wide.  It can be kept smaller with moderate pruning and shaping.  A great landscape rose!
