Memorial Day is one of the most fragrant Hybrid Tea roses in our garden. Its very large flowers are a beautiful pink color with lavender undertones. Tom Carruth, a prolific and award winning hybridizer and breeder of roses, created Memorial Day for Weeks Roses with Blueberry Hill X New Zealand as parentage. Developed in 2001, it was introduced in 2004. Memorial Day became an AARS winner in 2004. A medium-tall rose, it will grow to 43’ to 4.5’ with an upright and bushy growth habit. At the Peninsula Park Rose Garden you can find Memorial Day in beds 5, 8, 9 and 12.
