Last Hurrah for Roses

by Jonah Holland, PR & Marketing Coordinator, Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden

This year we have lucked out with no hard frost as of yet. What this means is that the Rose Garden has had a chance for a second strong bloom. Enjoy these beauties today and tomorrow though, Sunday night temperatures will fall into the upper 20s/low 30s — our first hard frost of the season.
