Sacramento Cemetery Open Garden 2012

 

Kick off your rose season with a visit to Open Garden Day at Sacramento Historic Rose Garden, a treasured repository of Old Garden Roses (OGRs).

Upon entering the cemetery, the roses in this first plot always take my heart.

Sutter's Gold (to the rt. in top image) is an undeniable star. Even though not an OGR, this California Hybrid Tea from 1950, has earned it's place here.

The mausoleum (shown at a distance in the photo at the top of the post) is well decorated with famous OGR's. In the foreground is Lady Waterlo, a Hybrid Tea Climber from 1902.
