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.

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!
