A found rose by Ethelyn Emery Keays. Keays was a great preserver of old roses and is the author of "Old Roses". First published in 1936 and republished in 1973. Blooms in widely varying shades of pink.
"Hawaii Volcanoes" was found in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park by Dr. Malcolm Manners. It blooms in clumps of about 5 flowers, blooming best with some chill. We grow it as a climber and it is easy to train. Opening pink and fading to a light pink.
A found rose, this variety is a survivor of Hurricane Katrina. It has a major flush in the spring and a smaller secondary flush in the fall. A quick growing plant, easily trained. Our mother plants, which are 5 years old, now bloom in flushes throughout the year. These will be the last Peggy Martin's until August.
