A Red Rose for Valentines

Rosa ‘Don Juan’ is the absolute favorite red rose of my gardens.

“Love is like a rose. When pressed between two lifetimes, it will last forever.”

Climbing a trellis in the hottest spot of my landscape, this rose seems to thrive in the heat and blooms profusely throughout the season. It’s fragrance is divine.

Jackson and Perkins describes this rose as Dramatic, crimson flowers with velvety, ruffled petals and an intoxicating damask scent are a standout in the garden, like a flamenco dancer on stage. The blossoms are set on long stems, just perfect for cutting! One of the only fragrant red climbers in the world, a seductive presence in any garden.”

A red rose is a symbol of love and romance.


May your Valentines Day be filled with love!
