New roses planted at the Rose Garden

Members of the Friends of Christopher Columbus Park Horticultural Committee have been busy cleaning up the Rose Garden and planting new roses.

“The last couple of winters have been hard ones on the roses,” Committee Chair Robyn Reed said. “So, 15 new bushes have been planted to replace the plans that didn’t make it through this last season.”

The committees planted a few types of roses including:

•       The Peace Rowes that has yellow blooms edged in pink.

•       The John F. Kennedy rose that has large pure white blooms.

•       The Tropicana rose with this brilliant coral in orange coloring.
