What better way to celebrate, honor and remember our nation's heroes than with a large planting of this uniquely striking rose. Memorial Day will stir patriotic feelings in the hearts of garden visitors with its enormous, perfectly formed flowers in an uncommonly pretty shade of orchid pink. Plus, this hybrid tea emits a very strong, old-fashioned rose perfume that harkens back to days of old, hinting at long-ago memories of wandering through Grandma's cottage garden. Outstanding for cut-flower bouquets—just one rose will fill an entire room with fragrance. Plant in well-drained soil for best results. Rosa 'WEKblunez' PP16572
