Rose of the Week: Ronald Reagan
This is another in the series featuring a rose from our yard.
President Ronald Reagan signed the legislation that made the rose our national flower. This bicolor beauty was named in honor of the President to commemorate the event. We’ve had this rose for a several years and it quickly became a favorite. We thought we had lost it during last winter’s harsh weather and we even got a new rose to plant in its place. But after replanting Ronald Reagan rose in a container and giving it some loving attention, we were rewarded with this beautiful blossom.
