Mother’s Day is next Sunday. Living rose bushes make the perfect gift. Star Roses Apricot Drift, and the ever popular Weeks Roses ‘Julia Child’ are perfect for the garden and/or transplanting in a beautiful piece of garden art. You can select a hand-painted pot for Mom to transplant your rose into. Another idea is to find a rose named for Mom, Grandmother, or a favorite relative, write a card telling Mom you ordered your ‘Create A Memory For Mom’ from an online catalog. I guarantee this will make Mom happy while you’ve created a memory that lives on.

Your new rose garden opens up new possibilities for collectables, yard and garden art as gifts.
