Pinktober® :Pink Promise USA 2006

We visited Butchart Gardens last month and since it was late in the year there were only a few roses still clinging to life. We ambled through the garden looking at all the names of the varieties and happened upon this solo blooming rose......the beautiful Pink Promise!

The National Breast Cancer Foundation selected this rose to officially represent a continual blooming promise of compassion and awareness. For every Pink Promise plant purchased, a percentage of the sales is donated to the National Breast Cancer Foundation. The Pink Promise Rose was hybridized by Jim Coiner and introduced by Coiner Nursery of Lavern, Calif.
