July 2017: Let Freedom Ring
Rosa Let Freedom Ring was the creation of WWII Veteran and amateur hybridizer Ernest Earman of Virginia in 2004. Later introduced in the United States by Weeks Wholesale Rose Growers, Inc. in 2006, this stunning medium red hybrid tea has proven to be a trophy stealer in the rose show arena. A cross between Prima Donna and Touch of Class, this beauty grows on long stems; each bloom consistently opening to reveal a rose of perfect exhibition form. Position this lovely specimen at the back of the garden as she will grow to be a tall bush.
Let Freedom Ring was chosen as July’s Rose of the Month in honor of Independence Day as we celebrate the many freedoms bestowed upon as a nation and as individuals of this great country that so many have fought and died for.
