One Tough Rose

I am so excited to have the “Peggy Martin Rose” for sale at the nursery. The Peggy Martin is a thornless climber that bears clusters of pink roses all season. What makes this rose especially unique is that it survived 20ft of salt water when hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans. Talk about tough.

This rose is tolerant of most soils and is an easy keeper. No need for spraying or pamering.

The roses I have at The Farm On Holly’s Hill Nursery are grown from cuttings from the very rose bush in New Orleans.
