My family has rose bushes that are over 100 years old and are still thriving. This was so informative to learn how these lovely bushes started.
Paul Zimmerman Roses
That's great to hear. Interesting trivia is that this method of hybridizing was perfected by a man name Harry Bennett in Scotland. Before then it was done randomly but mostly by Mother Nature.

I didn't either until the first time I saw it. On a really large scale it's quite an operation.
