walnut hill rose garden in Michigan

jlee160(5 MI)September 13, 2012

I just found out about this rose garden, and wonder if any of you have been there? They specialize in own root hardy roses, with no winter protection. I really wish they had a website, I can't wait to go.!

I wish I could tell you more but I've never been there. They did come out and give a program at our spring district convention this year. Nice program with a lot of information about what roses are really hardy with no protection and high disease resistance and low maintenance here in Michigan. They had a great slide show and the roses really looked beautiful so I imagine the garden must be quite lovely!

Sounds like a wonderful place! It's about 2 hours from me. Wish they had a website too! Just read this article on them and would love to visit someday...
