Garden Roses Popular This Year
August 18, 2011
News PictureIf you want to know what I think is the biggest news of the wedding season in 2011, I would say...garden roses. They are the happenin' thing.

According to the SAF magazine "Floral Management" this month, the "fresh-picked" look is in for weddings, including wild flowers, garden roses, etc. Smaller flowers are desirable.

(Is this a rejection of the huge south american type rose which has been perhaps overdone and costco-ized? Could be.)

It also could explain why our maidenhair fern is so popular this year.
