We love the antique roses at The Antique Rose Emporium.  They are easy to grow and just give your yard such beauty.  We have guests who buy different ones for each of their grand children.  Imagine the kids as they grow up knowing there is a rose bush in Grandma’s yard in honor of them!  What an honor it was for my husband to get three rose bushes from his high school coach’s rose bed after he passed away, a few years ago.  All of the football players took rose bushes, Festival of Roses and it is such a great memory of Coach “Pappy’ Drennen.
