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 consists of about 500 old garden roses from a variety of sources and sites.  The collection includes some unique roses, not found anywhere else.  A catalog of the collection is available for viewing.
