Europeana is a very hardy, disease resistant floribunda rose.  Bushing round and tall with thick clusters of blooms so prolific as to often obscure the beautiful green foliage and bronze tinted new growth that surrounds them, this rose lasts the summer never daunted by the heat.  These velvety red roses hold a sweet tea scent.  Taken all together this is a perfect rose for the first time rose gardener.

A Riot in the Garden

I think formal gardens, although beautiful, are a sign of human hubris. Nature owes us nothing and shares everything with us. To constrain Her, to force Her into patterns and method is a step too far. Therefore, my gardens are chaos itself, color, scent, texture and size run riot.

The Rose Show 2017

Of all flowers, the rose is among the most beautiful.  From the high centered hybrid tea to the peony like English rose they grace the landscape with every color imaginable and scent the wind with inspiration. Welcome to the Denver Rose Society Rose Show.  The theme of the show was “Birthday Bash” in honor of the DRS 70th anniversary.
