Our roses are located around the peripheral of the garden and have proven to be very hardy and easily propagated. A few roses were on the land and replanted, but most have come from garden centers and the Foothill College Horticulture Department.
Many years ago, we visited a unique place in Aptos that sells heirloom varieties called Roses of Yesterday and Today. The roses weren’t labelled so we picked two, and they turned out to be a deep red and a beautiful pink climber.
We love having beautiful colors and smells of roses along the garden fence that mix well with Jerusalem Sage, milkweed, butterfly bushes, irises, and dahlias.
