Rose of the Month ~ June
This month's selection is in honor of the upcoming rose show.
Last year's King of Show was Marilyn Monroe. A show-stopper
indeed, Marilyn Monroe is an apricot blend hybrid tea introduced
in 2002 and already causing quite a commotion in show circles.
It has large blooms and a light citrus fragrance. While you
won't be growing this rose in the maintenance-free shrub area,
if you are looking for big showy blooms that will do well
on the table, this one's for you. It will need the Minnesota
Tip for winter protection but with a little care, this rose
is a winner. Check out the photo and links below and add your
