Bloom of the Day

The second of three roses 'Love', 'Honor', 'Cherish', that swept the AARS awards in 1980. 'Honor' has the largest flowers, in white with just a hint of lemon at the center. With beautiful high-centered form and borne on long stems this hybrid tea remains a popular exhibition rose. The light fragrance is more noticeable in the vase than in the garden.
