[From "San Juan Bautista Rose Wranglers", by Loryn Ross, pp. 19-21]
San Juan Cemetery is therefore a very special repository of some unique and special roses. The cemetery contains varieties of roses, some of which few experts may have ever seen: a lovely rose, given the temporary moniker of “Flagpole Rose” and a once large plant named for the grave it protects, “Jose A. Africa,” and yet another mystery rose, “Mary Sellen’s Bourbon.”
