Is there anything more beautiful than the Seattle garden in May? Although every month has its special beauty, the May garden is bursting with new foliage and blooms. It is abundance and freshness, with the promise of summer to come. Here are a few of our favorites for the month of May.
I'd like to share my observations about some of my favorite roses, which I currently enjoy both in the garden and in bouquets at home. The first rose I planted was 'Altissimo' because I thought it best to start with a red rose. By autumn of that year, I was sold on roses. The rose grew about 6 feet, had large deep red flowers that continued to bloom all summer, a moderate fragrance and large hips of a glowing orange suitable for fall bouquets.
It's rose season and we are so excited that we just have to spread the news! Swansons is delighted to offer our customers the best selection of roses that we have ever seen anywhere. Seriously. All the roses now in stock have clean, glossy foliage and large, swelling flower buds that will begin opening this week.
