The stunning Therese Bugnet rose is in full bloom in the Peggy Rockefeller Rose Garden. Ever wonder about the people for whom your favorite plant species are named? Well, this cultivar is actually named after the sister of the man who introduced it, Georges Bugnet. This Canadian writer and plant aficionado bred this rose to endure harsh winters, making it quite a hardy plant indeed! Our friend Therese here is only one of hundreds of varieties that you can enjoy this weekend at the Rose Garden Celebration!
