I think I am in love...

Imagine the dilemma of picking between a red rose or a pink rose or how to bridge the colors in your garden. How about Emmie Gray? A Bermuda Mystery rose with her single petal blooms that start light pink and complete their bloom cycle as a deep dark red. The bush is covered with both of these wonderful colors. (Our catalog photo does not do justice to this beauty.)

The details.... Emmie Gray was found in Bermuda, thought to be a China as far as class but reclassified to Bermuda Mystery.

"Emmie Gray taught at the Bermuda High School for Girls for over thirty years. It seems she managed to singlehandedly populate the island with this lovely rose by sharing it with everyone she met." (from our online catalog)
