The Historic Rose Garden is a collection of over 400 “found” rose plants: collected from cemeteries and other sites where the original plants were planted 100 or more years ago. The goal is to save the old cultivars, since they are disappearing from the sites where they were originally planted. There are many chinas and teas along with other heritage roses, and some early hybrid teas. The cemetery is a unique site, with 19th century monuments, raised plots under ancient trees and space for the roses to be allowed to grow to near their natural size.
