This new variety was chosen for the "Remember Me" rose garden
Survivor, a new rose from Bailey Nurseries, is the 2011 “Remember Me” Rose Garden selection. The vibrant, scarlet-red blooms and superior performance of this rose honor the men and women who assisted and rescued others at both the World Trade Center and the Pentagon on September 11, 2001.
Survivor is an own root rose with a fresh, fruity fragrance. The scarlet buds open to showcase a vibrant red, hybrid tea shaped bloom that perfectly contrasts with the bright disease resistant foliage.
A donation from the sale of each rose will be made to the “Remember Me” Rose Garden, a nonprofit organization dedicated to creating three gardens, one each in New York City, Washington, D.C., and Pennsylvania, to honor the memory and spirit of each man, woman and child who lost their lives on September 11, 2001.
“Bailey Nurseries is honored to be part of this unique project,” said Pat Bailey, Bailey Nurseries vice president of sales and marketing. “We hope that Survivor serves as living memorial to the brave men and women who became heroes on 9/11.”
