Giving Tuesday Preview

Thanks to a generous donor, your Giving Tuesday contribution – any amount – is being matched dollar-for-dollar.

With a gift of $250 or more, a starter shoot of  “Harison’s Yellow” rose (R.x harisonii) can be yours to grow in your own garden. The “Harison’s Yellow” rose was bred by American attorney, George Folliott Harison, and introduced in the United States by Mr. Thomas Hogg – a florist and nurseryman – in 1825 as “Harison’s Yellow”. This rose blooms in a hue of golden-yellow, has a beautiful lemon scent and can have up to 25 petals that form in a globular bloom pattern. The roses are of medium size with an average diameter of two inches. This plant can be quite bushy, climbing, very well-branched, and will grow from to three to eight feet in height. “Harison’s Yellow” is a once-blooming plant and will bloom in either the spring or summer.

Shoots will be available for pickup at the Stowe Center in April 2019, with the exact date to be determined by spring weather patterns. Rose shoots are delicate and cannot be shipped.
